I’m struggling to explain it effectively to a student. Thanks! June 28, 2017 at 11:01 pm #119207 Dwight ManningParticipant Great question, Brenda. Physiological changes to create dynamic changes are related to the balance of embouchure aperture and breath support. For all double reeds the fundamental physiology is similar since both lips are involved. My former student, Dr. Bret Pimentel, posted a nice overview for all woodwinds (he’s a phenomenal doubler) on his website https://bretpimentel.com/woodwind-dynamics-and-the-embouchure/ I look forward to reading other comments. -best to all, DM Author Posts Viewing 2 posts - 1 through 2 (of 2 total) You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
