Me playing part of the Hummel up 2 octaves. I start on F over High C and end on A over Double C (that's 2 notes from Triple C). On several forums; teachers have said that you couldn't be resonant that high. Well they were wrong.

The key is to NOT over compress, not over tighten and not choke the sound.

This section is things that College Trumpet Teachers said couldn't be done. Yes I made a few videos to show things that teachers commonly say can't be done. I made these to help people to become OPEN to ideas and realities.

Take A Trumpet Lesson

Me Mouthpiece Buzzing from High C up to Triple High C. On several forums; teachers have said that you couldn't mouthpiece buzz that high. Well they were wrong.

Mouthpiece buzzing high notes is the best way to improve your range.

Lip Buzzing. On several forums; teachers said that you couldn't buzz low or relaxed or loose. Well they were wrong.

This relaxed buzzing helps to reduce facial tension, stiff lips and allows you to learn to use your strength where you need it and NOT everywhere.

Phone Lessons

4 Octave Lip Buzz. On several forums; teachers have said that you couldn't lip buzz more than 3-4 notes. Well they were wrong.

Trumpet video about buzzing and the aperture tunnel. On several forums; teachers have said that pressure doesn't close the hole on open embouchures. Well they were wrong.

When I use the pucker and apply pressure with the finger you can see it close the embouchure.
