Hello, listmates:

My thanks to Steve, Dan, Russ, and Jim for the comments.

Now I have another question!

As a reed player, I practice long, low tones because the only way I know how 
to control my
volume whilst playing a reed instrument is through breath control.

Does this technique hold true for brass players?

Are there other strategies for controlling volume whilst playing any wind 

Thanks, with apologies for my ignorance.

Best regards,
Meg [latecomer to playing reeds] and Big George
