    Thank you. Played long tones for more than 7 years the way you describe. But it never came up to my mind to try high register softly. Thanks for other tips as well

    If you notice in the Schlossberg book, many of the exercises decrescendo as you go into the upper register. That way, you better learn the technique for playing above the staff instead of just depending on mashing and blowing hard. ;-)
