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 1
Is about HOW our problems started
How to break the tension habit
Using a didgeridoo or tuba mouthpiece to relax
Find your relaxed facial set
Learning to get around on the trumpet relaxed.

Tension is the biggest factor in poor endurance and weak sound in trumpet playing. We all start as kids by using tension (tighten up). But as we develop nobody helps us replace the habit with one that works well for the longer playing demands and higher range.

This video book does that. There are 14 minutes of video lessons, 15 minutes of audio lessons and 12 pages of written instruction that guide you through the process of breaking excess tension. All for 15 dollars.

The complete series also has some of the music exercises used in the series, some out takes where we play doubles and triples and the series flows nicely as a means to correct embouchure or playing issues.

Because it is downloaded and because not everyone has broadband; I made the videos low resolution. Here are some examples of them. These have been shortened.

It is all about working both hard and smart.

Singing as a sound model and to open up the sound.

Stomach kick to help high notes come out.

Using mouthpiece buzzing to clean up the sound.

There is a LOT more of this but here is a short example of this clip working on the 2nd Brandenburg.

Hey Pops,
EXCELLENT!
Wow it's like having a lesson with you. Good idea for visual folks like me. I had no issues in downloading. I learned so much my head was spinning.


Video download info:

Test Video to see if you have a working player on your computer.

Save the Ebook to your computer. The videos are all linked in the Ebook.

If the videos links don't show live then you need to update your Adobe pdf reader. (They get corrupted.)
PDF reader

The videos are wmv files. Every type of file has pros and cons. Some are bad with certain browsers some only work with a few programs...
WMV is the oldest and so the most supported file type which is why I used it.

On a PC they will open (either to play or save) with:
Windows Media Player

Real Player

Irfanview

Itunes has a glitch where the extension ".wmv"needs to be changed to ".mov". Now you can play these wmv files on iTunes.

On a Mac they will open (either to play or save) with:
Windows Media Player for Mac

VLC

All are free programs. Some setups require that you specify a program to open them.
