    don jacoby recommended thinking OUT instead of UP. work from the highest note you can play with a relaxed throat. the next note is a foot further out from your bell, not up. stop when you get the urge to close your throat.

    this is obviously only a mental image, but it seems to work for a lot of people. to replace a bad habit, you have to put something else in its place.
