Re: Why do brass guys?
I used to buzz daily and often, but now I prefer the "air to buzz" method of tone production. If you're interested in more on the concept, I suggest researching the TBA and TMEA archives for articles and videos by Lynne Jackson, just to name one proponent. And with things the way they are right now, I'm doing next to no buzzing at all. I see the value in it, but only after the embouchure is more developed. I also recommend using visualizers and clear mouthpieces when tone production is an issue.
