How to Reduce Excess Mouthpiece Pressure (Video)


Here’s a quick video (roughly 7 min) with a few thoughts on how we can alleviate excessive mouthpiece pressure while playing the trumpet. We all occasionally find ourselves using a detrimental (but at the time perhaps necessary) amount of mouthpiece pressure. This can be caused by improper development, habitual subconscious techniques, tired chops, or just playing too damn high and loud. This video is meant to help you alleviate some of that additional mouthpiece pressure by way of adjusting your practice habits so that you can learn to play in a more comfortable manner, more often. Dig it!
