      This is a pretty elegant and cool explanation of the trumpet pipe… Nothing that Greg hasn’t said, but cool to see it so clearly…

      and the second part:

      Thanks for posting. Have seen these two videos before but had forgotten about them. Should be the first videos to watch before trying to play your first note on a trumpet as an absolute beginner. If you google “How to play the trumpet” what do you get ? Usually a very accomplished player with well formed embouchure muscles buzzing his/her lips. Why ? I tried this three years ago and I found it so hard it nearly put me off the trumpet. I understand free buzzing and mouthpiece buzzing as a development exercise, but not as a way to play. So glad I found WindWorks.
