If you know about the Cavaliers Drum and Bugle Corp, you would know that they practice bending notes alot. It usually shows up in their shows to as an added effect. I've seen them in rehearsals practicing how to do it as an ensemble and how to make it sound good. They only thing their caption head didn't talk about was wiether it was good or an effective thing to practice. My question is.....is it good to practice bending notes. What are the positive or negative affects of practicing it? Is it worth it?
