Long tones are good for more than just developing tone or beginners. They are a very important part of warming up to play. doing long tones properly with a good embrochure puts air into the horn, warming it up, gets the reed moving, and relaxes the jaw so its ready to play as well.

When you do your longtones(hopefully very regularly) think in your head the sound you want, listen, what can you do diferently to acheive the effect you want? it will take time, but eventually you will move closer to the sound you're after.

Longtones can be frustrating because they may not seem to be doing much good. believe me, they can make all the difference in the world
