Wow, thanks a lot for the very detailed answer! Great stuff in there, and I definitely think you’re on to something with the pictures. I’ll look in to it more and come back with another video hopefully 🙂
Hello again, and a big thanks to everyone. Such helpful advice. This forum is really one of the big perks with WindWorks, hats off to Greg for that one!
Will try all the exercises mentioned, as well as downloading an audio spectrum analyzer. Never thought of that – seems really smart!
Will probably post another video later where I try playing a…[Read more]
Thanks a lot for your input! Some good advice there. Haven’t really focused on the backswing at all lately, but will now, definitely.
The aperture corners still eludes me though. How do you work on finding them? The ah-oh seems a bit too wide for me, and I’m not sure I actually move the corners in horizontally, but instead get more vertical…[Read more]
Decided to get back on the MTM-train. Have had two lessons with Greg and worked with MTM on and off for around three years, but not so much lately.
I thought that I should post a video here to the forum since I’ve seen other members do the same, and get all kinds of good advice. My problem is that while I feel that I can do the exercise…[Read more]
Hi Greg and everyone!
Anyone here that have read Kenny Werners Effortless Mastery and have any thoughts on it regarding WindWorks? Would love to hear any thoughts on the similarities and differences on Kenny Werners Step One and doing WindWorks process stuff.
All the best,
Thanks for your answer Greg! Always great to get a little push and motivation to just stick with things…
Question: so you recommend just playing through the exercises in say the largo stage and further and not really focus on the process and just play? Even the process-oriented exercises?
I think my mindset has been more ”if the process i…[Read more]
Hi Greg and all others!
I have been trying to really get on with the WindWorks course lately, but I seem to be stuck. To be honest my practicing isn’t as regular as it should be, but I think I know why. Today when I went back to basics, again, I found out that I really couldn’t play the Low C with sympathetic oscillation, free flowing and not…[Read more]
Thanks for all the answers!
I definitely agree that it is up to each and everyone to find out what works for them, and I know that Greg isn’t anti-mouthpiece buzzing, thanks to the disclaimer in the largo stage haha 🙂
I’m just trying to find the similarities and differences between what Greg and Charlie are saying, just to sort out my own…[Read more]
Hello Greg and everyone else!
Watched this video by Charlie Porter today: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CoGohs41TT8 where he talks about mouthpiece buzzing and lip buzzing. Any thoughts/opinions on this? It seems very contradictory to the idea of eliminating the buzz of the lips on every note below high D, which if I remember correctly Greg is…[Read more]
I have been playing trumpet for over 10 years now (I’m 21) and have had trouble with range for as long as I can remember. When I was 16 I got a new teacher, we started working with Stamp exercises and he said that the root of the problems with my playing (poor range and endurance, sometimes sounding strained and forced) was my b…[Read more]
