breathing and pressure

Post by windchime »

I've been reading all day about breathing from various pros all over the Net and I have gathered that you inhale deeply and propel the air column to pressure behind your lips.

But how do you do that? I don't get any pressure behind my lips. The only thing I can figure out is to close the lips together and blow and that seems to build pressure and then open the aperture a little.

I'm a beginner with zero breath control. And I've been practicing for 2 months.

thanks for your help.
