Re: First day/week of brass playing
Got 12 beginner trumpets in 3 different classes because our counselor could not put the like instruments together. I started out buzzing last week. Moved to horns the next day with buzzing first. Tried to get them buzzing firmer and faster air for higher pitches. Loose lips as pitch goes down. Once they heard the buzzing on a higher pitch, the next day all came in able to do it. We are in week two of buzzing and playing and the first 5 notes are in the books.
