    Hey Chris

    I have been focusing for the past few nights on paying close attention to elininating the things that do not give good high note performance...that being

    too little air
    closed or receded jaw
    closed throat
    poor breath support
    air leak in embouchure or horn
    too much mpc pressure

    and to my delight the notes are coming out much clearer! What was wrong is that I was

    1: Using to much Mouthpiece Pressure
    2: My trhoat was not open enough
    3: To little air

    Now that I've identified the problem I can make the nessasary corrections.

    Thanks Chris!
