    Hey Gary. I'm feeling left out. Dr. Mark never comments on my posts. Maybe I have to invite him to one of my gigs, too. ;-)

    Heck, invite both of us and you may have a paradox.

    That would be the very least.

    I'm definitely going to start here. I'll do some work like this and see what happens. How can I ease up on the "forcing" but still maintain my range?

    If you're forcing these notes out, there's no range to maintain. These notes really aren't in your arsenal yet.

    Mark gave some helpful suggestions on using good technique. Combine that with a consistent and productive daily routine, and with retraining exercises directed at strengthening your velopharyngeal seal (these are mostly air stream exercises and tonguing exercises).

    Not everyone can afford a teacher. Another option might be a single lesson, or periodic lessons.

    If wishes were horses, beggars would ride!

    If you want to do something badly enough; if it is IMPORTANT to you - you will find a way to make it happen. Find a (good) teacher, ask how much it will cost, and then save up your money, or ask him/her if you can shovel their walk, mow their lawn, anything to barter your time for a lesson or two.

    Tell us where you are and maybe we can help you connect with someone.

    Are most teachers okay with teaching you, knowing that you'll be moving soon, so they'll only have you for a few lessons?

    I might be able to talk my parents into letting me with, university auditions coming up and all. In the past they have refused because I haven't planned on majoring in music.
