NOTES ON TECHNIQUE, By Trumpet technique can be broken down into 6 main headings: • Sound (tone production) • Articulation • Flexibility • Agility • Range • Endurance The following are ideas and examples of exercises and etudes that can be used to improve these necessary trumpet skills. Sound: Good tone production on the trumpet is a combination of a functional embouchure and the proper use of air. Therefore, the following examples will focus on improving embouchure strength and focus, or air flow (Or both! Jedit X Keygen Idm. ) 1.
Play sustained notes for at least 12 beats at quarter note = 60 making sure that the tone is full and that the pitch is stable. Continue the same feeling of air flow that you got with the long tones while playing (#1-5) I call these 'moving long tones', and the idea is to keep the free air flow that we achieve on regular long tones. Also look at and. Lyrical Studies. Just as we talked about keeping the air flow in the above 'moving long tones', playing lyrical studies continues to reinforce the feeling of always using enough air. Materials to use for this purpose are (also used for pedal tones),, (also used for transposition), and. Pedal tones and lip bends.
Using both pedal tones and lip bends can strengthen the embouchure. Pedal tone exercises from the and are a good place to start. Mouthpiece buzzing.
All of the above etudes can be done on the mouthpiece alone. Mouthpiece buzzing is an important part of sound development because it forces the player to focus the notes instead of relying on the trumpet to do it for you. Articulation: Articulation and response are completely interrelated.
Both are a combination of appropriate balance between the tongue and the air. When working on articulation, a player must always concentrate on floating the tongue on a foundation of air, and then work on tongue position and easy tongue motion. Single and 'K' tonguing are the basis for all articulation, and must be practiced independently of one another. Without a quick single tongue, smooth triple tongue is impossible.
