Tongue Arch

Available as an Electronic Book only (No printed books).

This is a complete trumpet course series.
There are 5 parts also available in 1 package.
(The parts are 15 dollars each.)


















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 is about
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. 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.
