Well, try to keep the great tone (Since TONE is EVERYTHING!!!!!!!!!!!!) But a way to help with that is to pick a pitch and buzz it. Just a dotted quarter or thereabouts. Buzz it again and again and again. What you will notice is that the note will become fuller and bigger. One thing to watch for is to use very close to the same amount of air from note to note. Don't try to use more air on the later notes. If you do, that will eliminate the puropse. Now the difference in actual volume will be nill, but the tone will become FULL and centered and that is going to be a huge step in playing loud and with good TONE.
