    Re: Centered Tone

    To me a centered sound and a projecting sound go hand in hand. If you can play relaxed without tension in your breathing ,embouchure and body you can hear a core in the center of your notes,this core projects very well. This why when a player tries to over blow and blast,which too many do when in marching band,their sound spreads and doesn't carry.You can't hear that centered core in their sound.

    I played one band where the player next to me was playing so loud I couldn't hear myself. When I mentioned this to the leader he said he could only hear me out front. This other player was very loud but his sound was spreading with no projection.

    Good post. "Go for tone" can be refined to be, "Go for core".
