    is directed by the brain. Right notes, wrong notes, good sound, bad sound, correct interpretation, strange phrasing....

    No matter what comes out of your horn, your brain gave that out. Maybe our focus as players should be on the control panel. The results might more in line with how we would like to play.

    Bad attacks and good attacks come from the same control panel. Send the right signal, get the right response. Send a confused signal, get a stumbled response. Any good physical action comes from a clear message sent to the right nerves that will give you what you want. Focus on the message first, send out a clear direction to your system. Practice is programing the right actions into your computer. Whatever you practice will come out of your bell. Don't practice mistakes, they don't need it!

    Range comes from the player as does tone.

    Use the right airspeed for the register you want, keep the lips together
    and project the notes (you have range).

    Hear the sound you want in your head and you have tone.
    Yes we can roll the lips in, out, sideways ;-) .... but most people
    don't have to think of that.

    Play a simple tune, Now hear a violin play it and do to again. Finally
    hear a bass singer sing the tune and play it again.

    You should have covered a wide range of sonority. Want sounds in between
    then try other sound models.
