Re: "Balloon" cheeks on blow notes

<<is there any benefit or
detriment for a harp player to balloon their cheeks on blow notes?>>

Find out for yourself.

Blow single note, 4 hole, long sustain, balloon cheeks.

While holding the note, use other hand to push cheeks in, listening for any 
difference in timbre.

I hear a subtle difference and prefer to keep cheek muscles loose. This goes 
along with my philosophy of letting go of any and all unnecessary muscle 
tension in the body while playing.
