  • Hi Greg,learning from you and exploring your revolutionary playing concepts in depth are the greatest gifts I’ve received as I journey through musician’s focal dystonia. Your techniques and brilliant psychology are helping me significantly reduce and eliminate symptoms, and are leading me to a much healthier playing headspace. I’m rebuilding my playing machine from the ground up using your approach and am on my way to becoming a much more relaxed, efficient player. I couldn’t be more grateful for my recovery progress and the effectiveness of your teaching!

  • Pat Jarve

    Hello Greg, wanted to thank you for the wonderful things you are doing with WindWorks. I have been struggling with bad playing habits the past 30+ years since studying with Chicowicz at Northwestern while still playing gigs and killing myself in the process. I am one of those students who struggled in college with some bad undergrad teaching methods. I have tried everything under the sun to make my playing more efficient but to no avail. Your ideas have saved my playing life and made playing the trumpet so much easier and fun again. As a public music educator K-12 the past 30 years, I highly endorse your teaching methods and approach to playing wind instruments. Best wishes to you and your family and continued success.

I’m not joking when i say that the knowledge and the information that you’ve decided to  share in such as generous way really changed my life not only as a player but also as a person… Please continue in doing what you’re doing: maybe you don’t even imagine the incredible importance of your job but i’m sure in the future you’ll be considered one of the great innovators of the brass playing like Arnold Jacobs. thanks a lot again!  Michele Bernabei ITALY

How do you change pitch on a guitar? By strumming harder?

NO, of course not!  Stop listening to the “Blow harder to play higher” crowd and learn how to effectively and efficiently play your instrument.

Equip yourself with the right tools to learn quickly.  Read this quote from Rex Richardson, trumpet virtuoso – “At once brilliant and stunningly simple, Mystery to Mastery is essential material for the global community of brass players.”

Stop Wasting Time Practising Ineffective Techniques!

Learning how to learn is YOUR biggest challenge

When you begin playing trumpet, you get a book of exercises or tunes, learn the notes then hope to play the music you love. You figure this is how simple learning the trumpet is…
You soon learn that improving is far more difficult than anticipated.
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.
