Hi Mark,

I’m practicing right now – well, taking a much needed break!

Out of all the books, so far, I’ve been working the most from “All the Notes and More.”  It is challenging but fits directly into one of the principles I teach and aspire towards – a solid two octave range around the circle of 5ths.

As such, I play lots and lots of two octave scales and arpeggios and lips slurs every day. My lip slur book for many years has been Earl Irons. But your book increased the “vocabulary” at least tenfold!

Thank you!
