It is apparent that tone on an instrument is the first level of communication perceived by the listener, preceding stylistic and musical elements such as rhythm, melody and harmony. And if Dave can’t perform some of Joe Allard’s exercises well, then they’re probably over my head in this lifetime and it doesn’t matter very much anyway. It is my contention that for a mature and serious student, understanding the reasoning behind a concept goes further than mere imitation and repetition for improving skills.

Obviously visual demonstrations of principles and exercises are helpful. Much of the information reflects my experiences from studying with the master, Mr.

I think its a great introduction to the Joe Allard concept. I think Lieb did some extremely good work going into physiological and psychological processes involved in getting a good sound on the horn, and his exercises and suggestions are infinitely helpful.
