How much are you practicing playing loud? Practice playing some etudes very slowly and as loud as possible for about 30 minutes. Slur everything. If you do this at the end of every practice session I guarantee you will see results within a few weeks. Make sure you are very relaxed while doing this, it's easy to tense up while playing loudly. One word of caution: if you feel light headed, then stop, rest for a few minutes, and resume. Don't push yourself so far that you may faint. Hope this has helped.
