NOW FREE WITH EVERY BOOK SOLD!!! The WindStick is simply the cheapest and easiest, yet most dramatically effective tool you can use to fully understand and experience the body's response to airflow and air pressure.
Firstly, after a full, silent and relaxed breath, place the hollow WindStick between the lips and feel how air flows unforced and naturally from the lungs. This is no GIMMICK. The WindStick is a tool that will rid you of the tendency to force air through a tight aperture. Learning how the body responds to air away from the instrument allows you to develop great new playing habits on the trumpet.
When you take this relaxed sensation of freedom to the instrument and combine the feeling of NATURAL AIRFLOW with the correct TONGUE POSITION/APERTURE POSTURE, allowing relaxed lips to respond to the airflow, you will have an ease of playing that you would have never imagined possible. Harmonic slurs become free allowing you to easily glide between registers.
Blow fast then slow through the WindStick and you will soon notice how easily tension creeps into what should be a relaxed exhalation.
Expensive? No! Controversial? Maybe! Useful? Absolutely.
Try it for yourself and be more aware of how your body as a machine can work efficiently to get better results, faster.
