"Okay, good.  So, I think the thing we'll work on today is breathing.  Which probably would have been true no matter what; it's the most important thing to get right when singing.  No matter how good your tone or your diction or your range, everything falls apart if you're not breathing correctly."

He nods. "I can usually breathe all right."

"Okay, so first off, you're going to want your feet either shoulder-width apart, either even or one in front of the other, about this far," she demonstrates, "whichever is more comfortable or feels more natural.  And put your weight on the balls of your feet and keep your knees bent; being all locked up will do you no favors here."

"There you go; that's good - your stance isn't as important as your breath but it's hard to breathe correctly if you're standing wrong so it's pretty important.  Keep it loose, but bear in mind that there should be power in it; your muscles should be activated, like - I have no clue if you do sports the same way we do, but - like there's not something happening this instant but it's about to, and you have to be ready to run or jump or dive at any moment."

"Okay.  Take a deep breath."

He does. He knows how to breathe from the diaphragm.
