Masterfoods USA proudly presents: Playing Tip of the Month

Mike Lawson • Archives • October 22, 2006



“In an effort to build and strengthen breath support, we created a challenge, called ‘Long Tone Challenges.’ The students challenged and timed each other while holding a long tone. The maximum time they could challenge one person was twice and they must write the times for both students. They listed their time and the student that they challenged on the paper. This was a long-winded race! Prizes were awarded to the student who could hold the note the longest and the person who challenged the most people.”
