Why learn with Pops?

I sometimes have people say “Pops you charge more than my local teacher.”

Yes but there is a big difference. 

  • I am world famous for teaching and have been mentioned in magazines and books written by other teachers. 
  • I have helped players to become full-time Professional Players.
  • I am the first person to ever write about The Aperture Tunnel (TM).
  • I am the first to both explain and give musical exercises to learn about Lip Setpoint (TM). 
  • I am the first to write about different embouchure systems as a 3-D model (Farkas, Maggio, Overlap, Stevens, Superchops, TCE.) 
  • I am the first to write about the 4 Trumpet Octave Keys (TM) relaxing enough so that mouthpiece seal raises pitch an octave, Air stream Focus (TM), Air Kicks (support), and correct lip compression; which are used by pro players but almost no hobby players use them. 
  • I have written about which facial muscles to use and which ones hinder playing. This enables you to play and be relaxed, when you stop the facial tug of war. 
  • I wrote about and connected the SS or hiss to tongue arch and wrote about how arch relates to anchor tonguing.
  • I created a new way to hold the trumpet that helps to reduce mouthpiece pressure.
  • I developed a new way to reduce facial tension in ONE day.
  • I did the 1st rewrite of music to The Arban Book in 150 years and brought the techniques into the 21st Century.
  • I am the 1st person to do a Thermal Imaging study of people while they were playing trumpet.
  • I am the 1st to do a study on resonance and spectral analysis of the entire Trumpet Family, Flugel, cornet, Bb, C, Eb, Picc and on how embouchure tension relates to resonance.

You have a choice. 

You can take lessons from the man that discovered, perfected and has taught these concepts to thousands, including pro players…or you can take lessons from somebody who may or may not have even read about those ideas.

The difference is BIG.
