The video shows how to practice this type of exercise, according to Claude Gordon (author) and my teacher, Bruce

Haag . The mistakes you'll hear are ones common to developing trumpeters and will diminish over time, as I

naturally discover the knack of trumpet playing.

This exercise is part of a 5 part lesson plan.

Things to remember when you practice

- 5 times 10 breathing exercise before beginning
- Practice each model for 3 days
- Breathe when necessary (not on last note)
- Push out ALL the air on last note - until shaking
- Add the upper octave where it's comfortable
- Rest as long as you play (finger and sing through each line)
- BIG BREATH - CHEST UP - SHOULDERS BACK (NOT UP)
- WATCH THE TONGUE
- LIFT FINGERS HIGH - STRIKE THE VALVES HARD
- Five Times Ten Breathing Exercise
