Actually, if you really want to do the Bordogni studies in such a way as to increase your range, try this. Play the etude (or section of) down an octave. Then play it as written. Finally, take it down two octaves and don't cut yourself any slack on the musicianship. The key is to keep everything open and relaxed as well as to make the music happen in all of the registers. Another hint: Use a slow, but "thick" air stream in the low register and try to take that sense of air control into the high range. That is what people are saying when they say that the low range builds the high.
Just my opinion. Contents may have sttled during shipping. Actual results may vary.
