Here Are your Weekly Tips:
Tip #1 – The Practice Habit
Taking 2 weeks off fromwriting tips reminded me of how easily we slip in and out of
Habits and routines. I am sitting in the airport trying to complete my thoughts as
I didn’t take the time over the weekend to do them.
Remember that sometimes the sheer act of getting your horn out is enough
to get you going… don’t let valuable time slip by!
Tip #2 – All In The Air!
One of the more common problems I hear with players on a routine basis is that they
don’t fill up the horn with air. One common sign is that notes
tend to sag or when changing pitches – especially with larger intervals
Be sure to ALWAYS breathe deeply – whether playing 2 notes or 200!
Please forgive any errors on this weeks tips, I’m doing this from my iPhone!
Have a GREAT week!
