I would like to ask, what do you oboist do in order to rid yourself of tension while playing the oboe, and also to increase air speed while playing the oboe.

I have been very confused and unsure about what i should do to increase my air speed, but many say that it should come from the stomach area, and that i should really focus and push from there to be well supported, and i am trying, but it seemed like i can barely increase my air speed and my higher notes are flat (beyond 2nd octave G)

When pushing at the abs area, do you guys push inwards, or outwards? It would make sense for myself to think of it as pushing inwards so that the air gets pushed out rather that pushing and flexing outwards, which feels weird for me.

I am also trying to play with less tension, any suggestions, i would be grateful to. I have the most tension in my shoulders.

Thank you so much!
