Good air -> good buzz -> good sound. Bad air -> bad buzz -> bad sound. Quantitative: More air-> more buzz -> more sound.
Air makes buzz makes sound.
(Buzzing on) the mouthpiece requires you to use a lot of air. When you do that, you take a lot of stress off the lips.
Less head movement (between ranges) means better endurance and more flexibility and technique.
Part of these exercises is to buzz in and out of all of the registers with very little change.
The lips should be reactive to the air – not proactive to the air.
