THE IMPORTANCE OF PREVIOUS POSTURAL AND RESPIRATORY WORK AT THE BEGINNING OF THE STUDY OF WOODWIND INSTRUMENTS.
Today we share with you an interesting article by a great professional and friend, Edmon Elgström (only available in Spanish). Edmon talks about the importance of postural work and breathing work from the beginning of oboe studies and even before them. This article was presented at the annual congress of the Higher Conservatories of Music of Spain. We hope you find it useful. You can make your comments and questions below the article.

THE IMPORTANCE OF PREVIOUS POSTURAL AND RESPIRATORY WORK AT THE BEGINNING OF THE STUDY OF WOODWIND INSTRUMENTS
After knowing that among students of woodwind instruments of the initial courses does not exist, in a generalized way, an efficient respiratory model and a control of the airflow at the beginning of their learning, this communication presents a proposal of intervention to be implemented in a way prior to the beginning of the study of woodwind instruments in music schools and conservatories. The objective of the same is to ensure that, prior to the beginning of the study of the instrument, you learn to use the body correctly, the abdominal breathing and to control the airflow, thus allowing the possibility of carrying out, later, a learning of the efficient instrument and free of basic problems.
Keywords: Woodwind teaching, postural and respiratory education, airflow, models of body use and breathing.
