My lessons with her have been VERY productive, she's really been giving me a lot to work with. She saw my old embouchure and said a change would be necessary b/c id hurt myself if I kept playing like this. She helped me get my position solidified and everything is coming back slowly.
My range is always an uphill battle but I have more control up there, the current thing I am working on is actually articulating up there and expanding it VERY gradually. Does anyone have any excerises for developing range in a careful way?
Instantly, when I began this change, my tonguing felt much more centered and my air could actually be controlled through the horn. I am happy with the change and have stuck with it, I hope to have one more lesson with her before I start college in the fall.
She is a wonderful teacher and I highly recommend her to anyone who is having chop problems.
Whenever I feel blue, I start breathing again.
