    I'm using the first studies in the Herbert Clarke book, just up and down pieces of the chromatic scale. Really cool, it seems to help. I think it will take time to get my "beginneritus" trained out lol. I think this is teaching me to go up without straining.

    I may be having some sort of the same problem, except my upper register sounds fine...if not a bit choked from a few bad habit I am breaking. Slowly.

    When I buzz on just the mouthpiece, every so often, I hear (and feel) a more violent vibration...and what I hear is the same note I am playing, (about) an octave lower.

    Is this the lips not vibrating together, or is it an extra bit of lip vibrating everyone once in a while?
