I always knew I should be doing my long tones, but I just couldn't do them. I’m sure that made for a rougher-than-needed time for me in the past. I very much enjoy doing this exercise. They are basically Long Tones with a Tune. I’ve gained endurance, flexibility, color control, soft playing calmness and abilities, loud playing abilities, smoother slurs, cleaner tongue, and I've gotten over my hesitation in starting first notes.
