“The physiology of brass playing has been shrouded in myth and misconception for decades, leading to pedagogical practices that are at best useless, and at worst quite damaging. Trumpet virtuoso and myth-buster Greg Spence has sorted us out, setting forth a method that defuses the madness. At once brilliant and stunningly simple, Mystery to Mastery is essential material for the global community of brass players.” – Rex Richardson, International Trumpet Soloist

Hi Greg, my name is Fernando Dissenha, I am principal trumpet with Osesp, here in Brazil. Your pedagogy is second to none. I am doing your course and spreading the news with my students with absolutely great results. I hope to meet you some day! Thank you for bringing such a fresh air of knowledge to all of us trumpet players!
“Greg, Bravo on your new WindWorks program, I am really enjoying it. It is bringing me back to my days studying with Arnold Jacobs and Vince Cichowicz. Your insights have definitely brought even more clarity to brass playing and the psychology of results! I studied with ‘Jake’ in college and he would be proud of you spreading the news and even improving on his groundwork!” Phil Savard, USA
Greg – great to meet you here – checking out your website – amazing stuff on there to help us fellow trumpet players – a ton of great information on there and I am going to check out all the videos!
Greg – wow, I am blown away by the videos. I discovered the leadpipe thing and no buzzing but just air in the mouthpiece about a year ago and never looked back. These videos hit the nail right on the head – amazing information!
Hey Greg, it has taken me over 20 years to discover what you have presented here in your book. Congratulations on the layout and approach, I know it will help a lot of people if they take the time to learn it for themselves!
Hi Greg, sorry for my terrible english, consider my small donation just as a little symbol cause i really wanted to thank you some how for what you’re doing. 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!
