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.
