    I couldn't agree more about keeping the lips from spreading.

    This is something I wished I would have learned 30 years ago.

    I have to agree with keeping the lips from spreading. I physically integrated this only a short time ago. However, what worked for me would fly in the face of almost everything one will read here as common wisdom. Especially the playing soft idea. Never took me anywhere.

    I'm glad I got a teacher who could identify what I really needed. My only tip would be, regardless of how good one used to be, nothing beats a good, experienced teacher.
