    oh -- now it is the Vulgano/Onady technique -- hope you guys got that copyright protected --- I am sure Mice will be beating down your door to introduce that technique to the rest of the world --- ROFL ROFL ROFL

    oh-well -- they say --- 2 heads are better than one, guess it took both of you, with both of your existentialistic ideas to come up with a combination of ideas that appeals to mice and perhaps men. ROFL ROFL ROFL

    We often get questions about "support," as in: "My teacher tells me I need to support more."

    All too often will think of support requiring more work, so they'll add tension, in their upper torso. In order to understand what playing with support is, one has to experience it first. The RAY OF POWER concept, for example, avoids excessive upper body tension and often lets students experience support and the felling of it, as well as the impact on sound and range. This way, the student knows how it feels, how it sounds and how to get it. Sure beats repeating week after week "Support, dangit!" Most good teachers have an arsenal of these kinds of analogies.

    Consider good Tai Chi practitioners; they know how to achieve great stability and strength in motion without tension. Similar to yoga I believe.
