Play downward slurs. Start on the middle of your range and play the scale pertaining to that note downward only. Play to your lowest note(that sounds good). Stop and rest then move down a half step and play down to your lowest note again using the scale pertainging to the note that is a half step down from your middle note. slur every note from top to bottom with no breaks! this is very important. This excercise will teach your embocure how to play with very minimal movement in your embocure when playing from the middle register to the low register. The main thing to think about when using this excercise is playing as relaxed as possible. You can use this excersise as a warm down but use it everyday!!
