I highly recommend getting involved in my "LIVE" COURSES! These courses have a lot of involvement with me almost every week while you are going through the course.
These courses are the BEST OPTION!
After the live lessons, the courses are tiered down.
By having less and less of me until...you are all on your own with one of my recorded video courses.
Most of the time, my video only courses are MUCH better than working with your local private lesson teacher and ALWAYS better than doing nothing at all!
Finally, if you can't or won't become involved in the video only courses, there are my recommended practice aids. Many of these devices and exercisers are part of my courses too!
If because of TIME, or MONEY, or BOTH, you can't become involved in my courses then working with some of these practice aids will HELP!
These are NOT a substitute for real authentic alone time with your horn.
PRACTICE was the word I was looking for. 😊
These ADD value you and can enhance your abilities...make you stronger, give you more endurance, open up your sound, bring more core to your sound, work muscles at odd angles thus increasing flexibility, and more!
IMPORTANT: Should you decide to get one or more practice aids/devices, you MUST follow my directions via the tutorial to a T. Almost always this means a lot LESS than what you would think.
ALL practice aids, devices, and isometrics and be a POISON for any brass player if done in excess.
Most of these devices are practiced with seconds, not minutes because of their potent and enormous effect.
For large muscle groups like your shoulders and pecs, if I asked you to do 5 or 10 push ups when you have not been doing those, you just might feel sore the next day.
What if you got super hyped and did 5-10 off and on through out the day for your first time?
YOUR SHOULDERS AND PECS WOULD ABSOLUTELY KILL YOU AND HURT SO BAD THE NEXT DAY!
Now, flip over to our very very tiny small muscles of the face grouped into our embouchure.
Are you getting the picture?
You do more than I say and you might screw yourself up so bad you won't be able to play for a week!
