Subtitled “Your Key to Endurance on the Trumpet,” this is the most thorough an examination of this topic that you will ever see. As any athlete will tell you, strength and flexibility go hand in hand for maximum muscular performance. A strong trumpet embouchure is of little value if it is not flexible…and a flexible embouchure is of little value if it’s not strong. Practiced correctly, this book will build both strength and flexibility into your embouchure, while giving you endurance that will allow you to play for hours without tiring.
Bill states in his intro: “Next to “how to play in the upper register,” I find that the greatest areas of concern shown by trumpeters are embouchure and endurance. And the two are very much related, since endurance depends directly upon the strength of the embouchure.
What is a good embouchure? It is one that allows you to produce a free vibration. A bad embou- chure hampers a free vibration. It's really as simple as that.”
