Improve Efficiency & Tonguing! | “R for Release” | Trumpet A-Z, S01E18

Sometimes, certain trumpet playing concepts don’t make sense because of how they’re explained. It can help to flip them around and look at them from a different angle. In this episode of Trumpet A-Z, “R for Release”, Bryan Davis discusses how to optimize your airflow and tonguing by letting the notes out, rather than forcing them.
