FROM NO GIGS. . . . TO LINCOLN CENTER How does a singer go from having no major gigs. . . . . . .to making her Lincoln Center debut? That’s what happened to my amazing client Annie Fitch! Annie had been hustling for years to breakthrough in her singing career but it was going nowhere. Her auditions weren’t making an impact and she wasn’t landing those next level opportunities. Worst of all, she was starting to question her talent and loosing her sense of excitement and joy for doing the thing she loves. Then. . . . . . she made a decision. She realized she could not get where she waned to go alone, committed to her dream, put her resources behind it…. And here’s what’s happened: A year later she’s making her Lincoln Center debut AND doing the leading role in a run of Pacific Opera’s “Into The Woods” while coming in 1st place in the contemporary category for The International Song Competition all within the last 2 months. She’s no longer wondering if she’s good enough to have a full time career as a singer. She’s on fire living the life she’s always wanted. Wanna know

The physics of support, what does that mean in singing? Understanding how your body works while singing, so that you can improve your technique and avoid injury. The role of the abdominal wall The abdominal muscles are the largest muscles in your body. They are an external oblique muscle, which means they run from the bottom of your ribcage to the top of your pelvis. These sheets of muscle help with torso stability and control breathing. The most important function for athletes is their ability to resist strain on your lower back and spine by keeping your core strong so you don’t injure yourself during a heavy lift or high impact movement like running or jumping. The role of the abdominal wall during weight lifting is twofold: it protects our internal organs from injury, and it helps us maintain good posture throughout our activities.

The role of the pelvic floor The pelvic floor muscles are a group of
