Talking about saxophone's oral muscle exercises and methods!
The only dependence of the mouth is the support and durability of the facial tissue, so doing some exercises to develop muscles will be very useful and beneficial. If you practice for a few minutes every day and stick to it for a few months, you will increase the muscle strength of this area, and you can make a mouth shape in the correct posture without restriction. 1. The corner of the mouth. whistle. Note that the corner of the mouth will move toward the center. At this point, do the maximum smile and pull the corner of the mouth as much as possible. The practitioner should feel the tension in the corner of the mouth at this time. Converting whistling and smiling poses is initially slow, but it is regular and rhythmic. After about 50 times, the muscles in this part may feel tired, indicating that the strength of the part is weak and this exercise is required. Repeat this process 3 times a day, and you will soon feel the muscles become powerful. In order to continue to develop and maintain muscle elasticity, the saxophone type can be practiced from time to time in this way. (Note; do not need a real whistle, the important thing is the posture of the lips.) 2, chin muscles. (1) The lower lip is tightly attached to the upper lip. The lip line should be straight and the lower lip should not protrude, but it should be applied with the greatest strength. The player will notice the ridge of the chin - this is the normal situation at the time of practice. Setting a mirror in front of the exercise will help to observe the posture. Hold this practice position for 10 seconds and repeat 25 times. (2) Maintain the above position and hang down the jaw when the lips are still tight. Saxophone type, at this time the mouth is about half an inch open, but continue to maintain the same relationship between the jaw and the lower lip. Place the index finger on the lower lip and press down firmly. The lower lip should hold the pressure down the finger and support yourself without the help of a squat. If you can feel the lower teeth under the lips, it means that the chin muscles have not been properly supported. The exercise of the chin muscle should also be adhered to daily. Only after correct understanding and mastering it can it save a lot of time in the development of the mouth. Position with mouthpiece: Due to the size of each mouth, the thickness of the lips, the length and uniformity of the teeth, and the different types of heads, the number of mouthpieces varies. It is the principle and purpose of finding the best trigger point and making a good sound. First, test blows from the front end of the mouthpiece, and gradually test it a little bit later; then, test blows from the back end of the mouthpiece, and gradually test a little bit earlier, through this method, repeated intentions and Comparing your own sounds, you can find that the saxophone has both full, round, and bright metal sounds.
