A personal note from Pete to Paul

Paul Fontaine helped me tremendously during an embouchure rehabilitation period following my impacted wisdom tooth removal. He taught from the wisdom of his own experience. Paul had his teeth "straightened" while on the road with Woody Herman. With the use of the Carmine Caruso exercises (and the help of Marvin Stamm), he got "back on his feet" (or lip) in a few weeks. If you ever have to undergo a chop rehabilitation or embouchure reconstruction, you might try the exercises he passed on to me.
