The J Trick for Releasing Tension

Hello Flutists! This video demonstrates an imagery used for releasing chest tension while playing the flute, which renders the tone more resonant. This hack was tested on students and colleagues with audible results. No flutes, flutists or ear drums were harmed in the testing process. ¬†You might try it at home to hear the effectiveness of the “hack”, as the result may not be very obvious in the video.
