    My director suggested I look up Del Staggers. He said theres an exercise that is a series of lip slurs. Anyone have any idea where I can get some info on Del Staggers' exercise?

    Well, he was fond of the sauce so I guess it's appropriate.

    Del Staiger's "Flexibility Studies and Technical Drills" is (as far as I know) out of print. I read and played through it 30 some odd years ago, and from what I can recall, it was sort of like the Clarke book, but using the tongue rather as the slur for the default setting. Check with your local library about getting an interlibrary loan. Not to worry, librarians live for those kinds of challenges!
