I have watched so many of your videos and you have changed my entire thinking of what the trumpet is and how to play it. i am curious on your opinion of mouthpiece selection. I know players that select different mouthpieces for different styles and some that claim its not the mouthpiece, its the player. Do you have an opinion on this, and if so I am curious to hear it.
The player has the idea of sound they want to create and then the correct mouthpiece will facilitate that sound in the most efficient way. As Bobby Shew says, "Not everyone wears the same size shoes!"

We want to change the way you think about practising the trumpet
When we begin playing trumpet, we get a book of exercises or tunes, learn the notes then hope to play the music we love. We figure this is how simple learning the trumpet is.
We soon learn that improving is difficult
Surprisingly, most brass players don't even consider what is really important. The best example of this is the amount of unhappy and frustrated trumpet players we meet... or the number of wasted hours practising without considering how the trumpet works, only to fail miserably when trying to improve.
Focus on learning HOW you work

"Hi Greg, the leadpipe came. As I said before, the
problem with my throat was between the mouthpiece and the trumpet. So, I figured
the leadpipe was the answer I have been looking for. After using the leadpipe for a few minutes, I was able to play a few notes
on my trumpet without any throat problems. God bless you! Because of something that costs $49.95, I am now able to play my horns
(that were quite expensive), that have been sitting idle for quite some
time. I know I am not out of the woods yet, but it is such a relief to know I
am on the right track. I can't thank you enough. And I will be ordering your courses in the
near future.You are the man! Sincerely, Carlo Berto"
"I could never dream of improving like I did with your book/videos, after two teachers and lots of wasted time. I never wanted to be a pro, my goal is just playing with the sound I love. A big grazie Greg! Stefano" ITALY
