I asked some of the best of the best for their ideas about trumpet embouchures.
In this 244 page Ebook are the thoughts of over 70 Trumpet pros:
I chose these people because I know what they have to offer. They are top students of Legendary trumpet teachers like Adam, Broiles, Caruso, Cichowicz, Gordon, Herseth, Jacobs, Jacoby, Maggio, Mendez, Reinhardt, Schilke, Stevens and Vacchiano.
Many have become world renown teachers in their own right. Plus of course world class players in all areas of playing including hundreds of years combined experience in world class Symphonies, over a thousand years of combined experience in The Big Bands of Armstrong, Basie, Dorsey, Ellington, Ferguson, Gillespie, Goodman, Herman, James, Kenton, Mingus, Rich, Terry and Welk. Years of multi show nights in Las Vegas, thousands of movie, TV and cartoon recordings. Included are authors of method books, horn designers, mouthpiece designers, ITG Presidents (more than 1), College Professors, inventors and innovators. In short these people have been there and done it all.
You’ve ALWAYS wondered what these people REALLY thought about trumpet embouchures. Now you can find out. This may be the most exciting book you ever read.
“Congratulations to Clint McLaughlin for this informative collection of professional opinions.
“The Pros Talk Embouchure” is a helpful tool for better understanding both the differences and the common ground relating to the embouchure. It will hopefully lead to further candid discussions about this vital aspect of trumpet/brass performance.

Your book is just fantastic and thank you for inviting me to offer up some of my thoughts on the subject.
It is an interesting book regardless of anyone’s bias.
Whatever one believes already can be found in this edition to verify that he is correct in his analysis.
On the other hand for those who are still searching and do not have their mind made up already it has something that is bound to work for them.
Congratulations on a job well done.
