Be your own teacher: Part 2 – Tongue arch




Part 2 – Tongue arch

This is part 2 of my complete trumpet video course series.

It features Andrea Tofanelli, Keith Wood, Rex Merriweather, Keith Fiala and Greg Kuehn.

This Multi-Media work is the best trumpet course I have ever seen. I started this project 6 years before I finished it. (A few of the clips are from 2004 and the latest clips are from 2010) I kept changing things to make the ideas easier to learn.

These clips are from REAL lessons.
You hear and see the playing problem
and I walk them through a new technique and then you hear and see the new result.

The clips in the multimedia book have NOT been edited so you see what works, when and how it works.

Part 2 covers:
  • Mastering tongue arch
  • Tonguing in the different registers
  • Learning to drive the trumpet with air focus from the tongue

Tongue arch is NOT waving the tongue around. If you don’t move the correct part then you choke the sound.

If you don’t move it enough then nothing happens. You need a guide to get you through the maze.

This does just that. It guides you to where you need to be. It has 38 minutes of video instruction, 5 minutes of audio and 5 pages of directions.
