So Sharon what your saying is (and I spoke about this to my voice teacher) that
you take no more than a normal speaking breath when you sing...you don't take a
bigger breath to sing a long phrase at all? How could this be? How can you
possibly hold a long note or phrase with a shallow breath? I have tried this
approach and it may be enough for a short phrase at low volume it's not enough
air to get you through a long phrase at even mezzo piano volume.
