    Hey Pat! Good to meet you! Yes, I studied with Rapier. I am greatly interested in taking part in any commemoration of such a great man. I have PMed you and look forward to hearing the details you and Mr. Tunnell are putting together. I am so happy to hear the news! Thank you!

    :thumbsup:

    interesting, derek...actually, my Bb was ABOVE the Eb! my problem seems to be too much tightness to begin with. now when i do my mouthpiece buzzing, i always do the first one without a reference pitch, and then hit the Eb on the piano to see where i'm at. i invariably have to loosen my jaw and drop my chin to achieve the Eb. since doing this, my sound has opened up tremendously.

    Jason,

    Perfect! It sounds like in your case, this is exactly the right prescription for you. I’m glad that you clarified your first post.

    Take care,

    I like Mark Gould's word; "chocolate", as it applied to Wm Vacchiano's sound. I'm gonna have to think about that for a while. Chocolate.
