Be your own teacher: Part 4 – Buzzing and the aperture tunnel




Part 4 – Buzzing and the Aperture Tunnel

This is part 4 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 4 covers:
  • Lip buzzing to correct open embouchures
  • Learning to set an embouchure
  • Mouthpiece buzzing for accuracy
  • Improving tone and resonance FAST
  • The aperture tunnel (TM).

Buzzing has a place for all players BUT there are several ways to do it. Each way corrects a different issue. It is used to learn a new embouchure, or work note placement, tone…

This guides you through the process. It has 21 minutes of video instruction and 4 pages of written instruction.
