Resistance Training

in Brass

Hello Fellow Brass Musicians,

I have been playing trumpet for a while now. My range goes all the way to double C and a Double B flat(Meaning a good tone on B Flat). As my range goes up, I noticed that my resistance is not as good (I loose my chops faster, and can only practice my music for an hour before I have to stop) I have tried loosening up and using more air to hit high notes but it still doesn't work. If any of you could help, I would appreciate it so much!
Thanks!

Welcome to this Group!

In this group, all brass players will perform in an ensemble. We will not physically gather and play together. Instead, we will film ourselves and I will put all of the filmed videos together. It will look very cool!

A Christmas Music Mashup of 33 songs!

Hey all,

Using Musescore (Salamander piano font), I've made an original mashup of 33 classic Christmas tunes just in time for the holidays. Link here: https://youtu.be/zRaazQpWrCs

I thought it was pretty cool to share, and since it's my first polyphonic mashup-type piece (as well as my first post here), I'm open to any feedback and critique. Depending on the response, I can also post the full score here soon. Hope you all enjoy!
