Lesson 2

 

Breath Control

 

In order to develop into a good trumpet player there are certain techniques which you must develop. These are; 1) Proper breathing  2) Proper breathing  3) Proper breathing. 

 

Breathing is a strange topic. Every living thing breathes. Almost everyone is certain they are breathing correctly. The problem is that correct breathing for any physical activity, even trumpet playing in the low to middle register, is not proper breathing for ascending into the upper registers.

 

Breathing is the single most important thing you do to sustain life. It is also the single most important physical aspect of playing the trumpet. Breathing while performing must be relaxed, supported, and energized to ensure your peak performance of any piece of music.
