Is there more than one way to maintain my drone?

Cheek Squeeze

You can keep your drone going by ways other than just blowing air out of your lungs. One of these methods is known as the cheek squeeze. If your mouth is full of air you can expel that air and keep your lip buzz and drone going by squeezing your cheeks together quickly. Try it. Make your drone and squeeze your cheeks together quickly expelling air between your lips. Over time as your cheeks get strong your can change the sound of the drone and create rhythms using this technique. It also will be a very valuable building block in learning the art of circular breathing.
