Stretching is not the answer. Sadly, practice is a good plan... Lip slurs done correctly will strengthen the chops as well as facilitating good sounds and flexibility. But to get to the really high stuff, corners in, tighten everything, cross the eyes... I had 6 octaves BACK THEN... maybe a minor third now.. but good, hard work is a great plan of action. |
Good luck, and be encouraging to the kid....
