Is it bad technique if you can hear a singer breath, even if they breath low and from diaphragm

My vocal coach taught me how to properly breath when singing. In addition, she said that I should not be gasping when breathing, and I have heard other vocal coaches saying it should be relatively silent. With that said, how come when I hear good singers, I can always hear them inhaling before a phrase? Is it ok if a breath is heard, or does that mean there is unnecessary tension in the larynx?

@CGrassa,
Why do you keep asking the same question over and over - especially when vocal coach is advising you with the correct answer.

Singers who are pros ..even hit makers ... aren't using the best form.

@CGrassa,
You don't seem to understand how a forum works. You ask a question, others provide an answer.

Why are you looking into my profile at details such as my age? What does my age (or yours) have to do with anything? I have replied to 100s ..perhaps 1000s of people in my many years on various forums.

Heck, Roger's answered quite a few of your questions too...and he's older than I am. So what?

Lastly, where did I state an untruth? You may not like an answer but it doesn't make it any less true.

You can hear many singers breathe before a phrase because they have microphones pressed up against their mouths. That's not a problem with their technique, that's a problem with their sound engineers. Listen to a singer who isn't electronically amplified and you'll notice the difference.

Oh, and by the way, Ragman's advice isn't sixty years old. It's correct and up-to-the-minute. The impertinence of youth, however, is apparently timeless.

No kidding. I know someone who's a vocal coach that I was going to forward this to but I'm not going to bother now.
