      Hi guys, there was a very important issue raised in another thread so here is some very important info to keep in mind. Happy tooting! Greg

      Hi Greg! Thanks for posting this new video, and especially for some new exercises to ensure the throat is not closing. As you know this is/was one of my issues (that brought me to the WindWorks course) and after many months of process and awareness it’s far better. Your methods are working! Occasionally my release of the air isn’t correct and this gives me a couple of additional ways to check/remedy that.

      I hope all is well with you. I look forward to talking with you soon – I need to schedule another lesson.

      Thanks for the video Greg. The whole concept of the body’s concert hall has been working great for me in relearning how I play.
      Throat issues seem to creep back into my playing when I play softer. It’s like I try and restrict my airflow this way to get quiter. Should I be holding back air by supporting the lungs or is it all down to the size of the aperture? Anybody have any tips or advice for this?

      have similar issues tend to engage when i go soft

      for practice try taking a smaller breath on the back swing
      try it and experiment without the trumpet to start with.

      just removes another variable.
      Have fun

        Thanks j.gardam. A smaller breath does seem to help a bit. I’ll keep working on it πŸ™‚

      Thanks for your recent videos, Greg. Still working on this one… Looks so easy, but SO, SO, SO hard!
