$39 Includes 2 Instructional Video Download Tutorials. This option does not include the Sizzle*Pipe Trumpet Leadpipe.
One video tutorial explains the nuts and bolts of leadpipe buzzing, and how to get it connected to your mouthpiece. It also introduces you to the Warm-Up which consists of 12 repetitions. Please Watch This One First
The other video tutorial picks up where the intro video left off. It starts out with a brief review of the Bill Adam warm-up covered in the first video, but then moves on to advanced and more in depth strategies devised by Kurt Thompson!
It is highly recommended you get the option that includes the SIZZLE*PIPE, but if you would like to save a few dollars and use your own trumpet lead pipe by taking out the tuning slide, you will still get quite a value by following and learning from these 2 tutorials!
REASON TO LEADPIPE BUZZ:
Use as a warm-up like Bill Adam did.
Opens up and improves your sound.
Will improve range, slotting, and power!
If you haven't heard of Bill Adam, that's ok. The short version: He was a well-known Trumpet professor at Indiana University and at the time by the late 1980's, Indiana boasted the largest enrollment of Music Majors of all colleges and universities.
Bill had many approaches and philosophies regarding trumpet playing. (at least as far as I could tell).
One approach that seemed to be mainstream and a constant with him was....LEADPIPE BUZZING!
Bill Adam declared it opened up player's sound. Improved pitch center, resonance, flexibility, range and was one of the best ways to start the day using it as a warm-up!
