I had my end of the semester jury performance today (I'm currenly studying flute actually- graduate level). I got good scores, but all three commented on my breathing not being steady/following through. This has been a problem for me- when I record myself (saxophone, flute, voice) I really notice that I have to breathe before finishing phrases sometimes, which obviously affects the performance. I actually don't usually notice it as I'm playing- I feel like I'm being sneaky and clever and grabbing breaths when no one will notice or something! Sometimes I wonder if I'm just out of shape physically- literally- like being out of breath when you climb stairs and you just need to go to the gym more! On saxophone it feels like too much resistance sometimes (like a reed issue or something, or MP), but actually I don't think so, because I run out of breath on flute and vocals also sometimes. I try to take really deep breaths- I don't have asthma or anything. Any thoughts?
