    and ruin trumpet players You must understand that trumpet teachers tend to base their trumpet teaching principles on their personal experiences playing the trumpet and or principles revealed to them by their teachers These pedagogical approaches may be very successful for many students but if the instruction is not based on solid natural laws and logic the results will be far less desirable than hoped for I am not saying that you should question each and every thing your teacher says but you should constantly be making assessments of the techniques you are using and prove to yourself over a sufficient time period that they are working or are not working for you Don t just follow blindly Instead constantly seek those techniques that work best for you asking yourself if they are logical and natural and above all effective Become your own teacher I believe that there are two basic fundamentals of trumpet playing The lips must be free supple to vibrate not restricted by excessive lip tension or excessive mouthpiece pressure The airflow must be of sufficient quantity and energy to enable the lips to vibrate efficiently energetically and at the proper pitch These two basic fundamentals seem obvious don t they But how many trumpeters violate these two principles on a regular basis especially in the upper register I ve seen hundreds of trumpet players who would agree with these principles in theory but in practice let themselves introduce tension and pressure to the embouchure and at the same time restrict airflow Remember if you keep these two fundamental principles in mind as you practice most other obstacles will fall away The great trumpet pedagogue Pierre Thibaud and many others believe that pedal tones help establish one s best lip position After years and years of experimentation I tend to agree If you can play a full sound on a pedal F one half step below your low F this should become your default embouchure setting Once that note is established begin working your way up with that same setting There will be some very minor changes as you ascend but try to keep that basic forward slightly puckered position as you ascend to the high register without any attempt to press the lips together or use excessive mouthpiece pressure Try to maintain a relaxed and open aperture in all registers You may wonder how you can play your entire range with the same setting The answer is with increased air speed In other words hold the embouchure setting in place and blow faster air as you go higher If you blow faster air but only get a louder pitch not higher it is because you are letting the increased airflow make the aperture larger Concentrate on holding the embouchure aperture setting in place as you ascend This will take some getting used to and will require some time for your embouchure muscles to adapt It is important to realize that this approach also requires a deep
