Free Breathwork Seminar for 15 Singers or Instrumentalists
August 31 & September 1  3:00 – 6:00 pm
Grace Covenant Presbyterian;  789 Merrimon Ave  Asheville,
Prerequisite:  The participants must have a secure pedagogical idea of singing and breathing.  The seminar will consist of a 3 hour group session on Saturday and Sunday.  You must attend both sessions and all three hours on each day.  Bradley will be working with you on the mechanics of the breath and body through exercises that will help release old patterns of tension that block your body, limit your mind, and impede the breath.  This is not a voice lesson, but tools and information for you to apply to your singing or playing.  The spots available for this seminar are on a first come, first serve basis. If you are unable to reserve a spot, no worries because Bradley will be doing another seminar during the month of October.  He looks forward to meeting and sharing these wonderful methods with everyone.

About Bradley Williard 
Breathwork professional and singer, Bradley Williard has developed his own method for helping singers, instrumentalists, high performing business professionals, and persons living with breathing disorders connect their bodies to their voices while establishing a healthy breathing coordination. Influenced greatly by the work of F. M. Alexander, Dr. Carl Stough, and Ilse Middendorf, Bradley has  studied with first generation teachers at the Middendorf Institute and with International Breath and Bodywork Practitioner, John Norris in Berlin.  He has also had to honor to study with Lynn Martin of Breathing Coordination and with Ann Rodiger of Balance Arts in New York.
Bradley Williard completed his doctoral course work in Voice at the University of Kentucky in 2010.  He has sung internationally and with many opera houses in the United States, including Cincinnati Opera, Chautauqua Opera, Sarasota Opera, Des Moines Opera, Kentucky Opera, along with many others. Bradley has also had the honor of guiding one of his students through the Metropolitan Opera National Council Semi-Finals round in New York.  He earned his Master of Music from the world renowned Manhattan School of Music.  During his tenure in New York, he studied voice with Ted Puffer, International Pedagogue David L. Jones, and Mark Schnaible.
Bradley Williard has currently relocated to his home state of North Carolina and is opening a breathwork practice in Asheville. He is very excited to bring these breathing methods to the southeastern region of the United States.  He will be giving a three week breathwork seminar at the University of North Carolina School of the Arts in September.
