    I like the partial half-valve approach. If there is any part of that I chip (though rare), it's that last slur.

    I'll second the vowel shape for the embochure. While we should be using bassoon syllables, play like a rogue trombone and using "tu." If you have access to a brass horn, that too has a brighter...

    At one time, I was a little concerned over possible ill effects of Blue Juice on one's health, so I asked Demondrae Thurman in a masterclass if he thought the stuff could give you cancer. He laughed...

    In college, my first studio professor could always tell if I picked up my trumpet during the week, even once. My tone was noticeably thinner to the trained ear. If you play enough, you can always...

    Allstate Insurance Commercial

    In an Allstate Mayhem commercial, the person representing Mayhem sits on a couch next to an upright euphonium on the couch with him. The commercial's theme was a family of over-sharing social media...

    I certainly don't think that is too fast. I think the most important thing to keep in mind is your stylistic approach. Big enough deviations aren't always well-received, most especially in audition...

    High Range?

    Practicing a trumpet will eventually have a negative effect on your tone. I had a professor who could always tell I picked up a trumpet during the week before my lessons. It does thin things out....

    MPC Buzz is Dead

    I have to agree on all accounts except taking a mouthpiece on a roadtrip. I would much rather listen to the radio.

    A lot comes to play regarding one's own experience with a mouthpiece. In seminar...

    Weril 4-Valve Euphonium

    My ex played a Weril. I remember the valves on it were always problematic. It's not a bad horn per se. It fit in well in community bands where there were solo lines for arrangements of Duke Ellington...
