Warm Up & Wind Power - Proper warm up is essential when it comes to endurance. Wind Power is the key ingredient to range. They both play a major role in being a great trumpet player. These two trumpet lessons are a 'must learn' for part time and come back trumpet players,as well as daily maintenance for active trumpet players.
The Tongue & Muscles of the Face - These two trumpet lessons are the foundation for keeping your air stream strong and consistent, and for taking the pressure off your lips which will strengthen your embouchure. Most chop problems are not lip problems, they are tongue and face problems.
Lips, Fingers and Flexibilities - Playing trumpet is an athletic activity. Just as athletes need to train their arms, legs, speed, and movements, trumpet players also need to train all areas relevant to their playing. Proper development in these areas are key in being a well rounded, complete trumpet player.
