Why we are doing the tongue stop?

To engage and strengthen the Aperture Corners and the facial muscles
To encourage the Sympathetic Oscillation of the lip tissue
To disengage the innate desire to blow rather than RELEASE
To optimize efficiency, especially when heading into the upper register (where the trouble really begins)
