"The skilled artisan is limited only by their tools, and their imagination. As artisans of wind and song, articulation may be our most important tool. It serves not only to provide a note’s beginning, but also its color, character, shape, and direction. Therefore, the study of articulation is one in which the ultimate goal is control: The ability to create at will, with unwavering consistency, a note whose properties are defined not by chance, but with intent. Achieving a high level of control necessitates the development of a diverse set of articulations backed by a foundation of well-conditioned muscle memory. Indeed, an artisan is only as good as their tools and as musicians we are both the artisan and the toolsmith." -Casey Jones
