We’ve all heard a huge amount of technical lingo throughout our school and professional lives, but I often question how useful much of it is. This video demonstrates many parts of brass playing: use of the tongue for articulation and range, position of the mouthpiece, width between the teeth, and probably three dozen other facets of the horn and trumpet you can read about.
Notice, now, how much we can learn just by watching this creative demo– WITHOUT words. Hopefully, we’re EXPERIENCING left brain meeting right brain. Music achieved as an experience and not an action.
Next time while practicing or teaching, consider how much you can teach without saying a word.
