Lately I've been having response problems. This is a problem that has sprung up on me with no warning. I've had my streaks in which my playing has sucked but nothing has ever lasted this long (2 and a half months). At first I thought my lips were simply spread and did a lot of soft playing to fix that. However, the more soft playing I did the worst my response got, the airier my sound became, and the harder it was to make a sound come out. I've tried taking time off but when I come back my lips don't feel anymore rested (they usually would after taking time off). Then I thought it could be my air so i focused on breathing but my sound just became forced or nothing happened at all. I need some new ideas- PLEASE GIVE ME SOME!!!
In case some of you are wondering My warm up consist of breathing buzzing, some breathing exercises, long tones, and lip slurs.
