 Re: Dynamics for a Beginner

Most American teachers that I have come across using a long scrape recommend the abdominal support and air speed for controlling both pitch and dynamics. Martin Shuring's book is great at explaining it. A good teacher though will help you through it all. Currently I do not have many students, partly because where I live, there appears to be little demand. A web teacher may help you until you get to have a face to face teacher. As I am playing softly, and especially if playing low, I visualise that the abdominal muscles are appplying pressure upwards and also in from the outside to the centre, where the air column starts. I cannot say whether or not this is acutally happening, but visualisation and aural concept is really important in helping you achieve the sound you want.
