Hope this clarify's. The feeling I had was an opening of my throat and I think using the back of my tongue to guide the air into the higher range. As I have experimented, I use the back of my tongue to push into the range with good air support and then relax the tongue if possible to open the air for better tone. Best i can describe my weird breathrough is like chugging a "soda" with the throat opening and then raising the very back of your tongue to pinch the air into the note and releasing with massive air support to to have the note with some tone. I do know what a double high C is- no, I can not play with any real tone beyond the e - but have squeaked it out. Most importantly, does not really matter - I am just excited to play up to a high C with some tone and relative ease compared to my high school days and more excited about sharing experiences. Thank you for you insight. love the idea of finding a buddy - I have always struggled with some stage fright, playing with another person might start to help this. I used to study under a player in the Toledo Symphony - years ago. Hopefully, if I can progress over the next 6 months I will look to get a private instructor of similar caliber again. Any personal recomendations for instructors in the Jacksonvile, FL area?
