— Stage Fright

We're aiming to produce a series of videos with Snake. They won't all be for saxophonists. This first video could be for anyone at all, in fact the exercise helped me when I was undergoing chemo and I struggled with a severe shortness of breath. I'm now able to take deeper and longer breaths than I ever have.   Stick with it, as Snake always says "practice, practice, practice" and you'll really notice a difference.” - Snake Davis
