Steps

  1. 1
    In other video tutorials, we have discussed embouchure, diaphragm support, and how to buzz with the lips (tutorial 1; tutorial 2).
    It is important to remember all of these elements in order to produce good sound. Remember to stay in a proper posture.

  2. 2
    Begin by buzzing the lips, using embouchure correctly, and providing good airflow through the center point of the mouthpiece.
    Diaphragm and breathing usage are crucial. Focus on trying to get a strong and high-quality sound through the mouthpiece when buzzing with correct embouchure.

  4. 4
    For an exercise, we will buzz with our lips for four counts and then rest.
    This will help to develop our embouchure and focus our breath on a center point. Following the rest, we will buzz using the mouthpiece for four counts and then rest. Finally, we will place the mouthpiece into the trumpet and play a C or a concert Bb for four counts without using any valves.
