Hi there!
Just want to thank you first for site and forum - it really helps!
And my question is about visualisation. Maybe because of the language (my first one is russian) I cannot get it clear from the article on your site. WHERE exactly I should see the sound? WHERE is that line? Is it like a screen in front of me? or should I see the sound going from inside me into the sax and out of the bell. Please help me with that as I believe (and even know from my professional experience in other area) that visualisation has a great power.
Maybe somebody can share some other tips for visualising the sound and how it can improve your play:sax:

hhmmm... But where then I see a beginning of the sound? again is it my lungs and then the straight line of the sound goes through the mouthpiece...or it starts at the mouthpiece?

I would not bother trying to visualise your lungs or mouthpiece, Just the sound. I can understand if this doesn't work well everyone, it works for me and some people but I haven't really reserched on how to do it for anyone who is finding it hard. Sorry.

OK...First I probably really need to keep the SOUND in my head and after that to visualise that... Maybe that was my problem I tryed to see just a picture and forgot about how it should sound :confused: ... But thank you guys for your advises - gonna go now and just practice, practice, practice. That's I think what it is;}
