    The exhale sounds like longtone exercises. I too wonder about holding the breath and a correlation to playing (unless your conductor is a jerk and throws up the baton and holds you "forever"). Stamina is always a plus and being in shape rarely hurts anyone! ;-)

    Proportionally to that Great White, she looks like a chicken tender. Also, she's not wearing a bikini. EVERY guy in high school back then knew that! :-D

    If she would come out of the water I would be happy to buy her a bikini.... eventually

    She had dandruff, you know. They found her head and shoulders on the beach.

    You all are aware of the fact that southern California is frequented by sharks ... not something I like to dwell on when I am in the water.

    Hi Gman,
    You stated:
    "If you want to breath longer, try circular breathing. I use that technique a lot and it works well.
    ---
    Please explain. I'm not sure what you mean by "breathe longer"
