A Small Embouchure Change…

/ by

Yes I’m at it again!

…I have done “modifications” to my embouchure setup before…. many many times and I will not stop untill I find what I know is the best way to play for me.

I’m always looking for ways to play the trumpet more efficiently. Right now I’m “gripping” the mouthpiece more with my lips then I have done before and, so far, the progress seems promising.

The notes above middle C are more secure and I feel I can “lean into” them with my air…if that makes sence…probably because of the gripping the lips and embouchure “locks” securily in place and then it’s just about letting the air do it’s magic.

I’m also allowing air pockets to form and this helps me play more relaxed.

Let’s see where this takes me!

Right now I’m planning what my next trumpet sheet music tip will be. I will probably make another video this upcoming weekend.

Todays total practice time: 120 minutes

Todays embouchure/chop status: 7/10
