If one picture is worth a thousand words, one video is worth one-hundred thousand words. Steve Park made a video recording of me demonstrating a few of the basic BE techniques. I distribute a link to this private youtube video to all who buy the BE book. I'm always and tickled when I receive feedback like this! I'm grateful for Steve's support and, of course, for Jeff Smiley's BE method. After studying it for 8 years, I'm still mesmerized by what it helps horn players achieve!
I started BE tonight and wanted to let you know that your youtube video was a great help! I tried for 30 minutes to get a pedal F out. No luck. I can see where young players have the advantage here. Finally I found it, and was actually able to hold it out for some time.
I can't wait to move on to the other exercises. It is great to actually see you play these and hear them too, of course!
