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!

UPDATE:
If you are interested in participating, reply to this discussion and tell me what instrument you play and how long you have been playing it.

New Book for drummers

in Drums!

Hi! My name is Wilson and I would like to share with you the book I just released in amazon, almost entirely written in Musescore.

The book is about quintuplets and its name is "Five at the drumset".

It has a lot of grooves written as quintuplets, time exercises, a method for the development of the discipline and rhythm exercises. If you like songs like those of Anika Nilles, for sure this book will be very useful for you, even if you are tired of practicing the same thing all the time, this will bring new fresh air to your drumming.

Please check it out.

Old marching tenor patch?

I see it in mixer settings but it doesn't actually play anything... I liked the sound of the original tenor drum that was part of the drumlins plugin. Must I download that again to get the right sounds? The new tenor drum is just too plastic sounding and I prefer the fullness of the old ones. The same can be said for the "Old Marching Bass" which I would like to have as well. 

Now completely separate, I seem to be having trouble attaching a bracket to the single line snare drum. Any feedback, thanks.
