This is inspired by the loud practicing thread on Wilmer's forum. It came about that good, full and well-controlled volume is the result of well-controlled soft playing.
Maybe some of you here could help clarify a few of the things I saw on Alex's site about the "They" and "Thaw" attack method taught by Sam Krauss (particularly those whom have studied with him?).
Also, any methods you use to develop further control and quickness of response at soft dynamic levels like the opening of Oberon or the soft attack needed to sneak in for the lyric solo in Don Juan would be appreciated.
