Improve Your Efficiency! | “O for Overblowing” | Trumpet A-Z, Episode 15

Overblowing is widely regarded as the root of all evil for brass playing. It is certainly not efficient and can make playing the trumpet much harder than it needs to be! In the latest episode of Trumpet A-Z, “O for Overblowing,” Bryan Davis explains a little more about it, some of the symptoms and a little known way to see if you’re overblowing. He also details the way it can actually be used to your advantage in the practice room.

Thoroughly looking forward to playing with Greg Ruvolo and his Big Band Collective, this evening, at the Baha’i Center NYC, on E11th St between Broadway & University Place. We play 2 sets between 8pm and 10:30pm for a single admission of $15 ($10 students). Come on out and check out a GREAT big band!
