The purpose of the patterns in Mark Ponzo’s “Embouchure Stabilization Patterns for Trumpet” is to develop the ability to buzz, with the embouchure, the pitches that you play on the instrument. This requires a very focused and firm embouchure setting with active breath support. Start by playing a low Bb on the instrument and then pull the horn away from the embouchure. Try to maintain the pitch, and buzz, as you pull away. This book takes you through all areas of the trumpet range while helping you to generate pitch and tone using your ear and embouchure with less reliance on the instrument. Efficient playing equals easy, free, and fun music making.
