When first learning an instrument, it is important to establish proper habits in tone production, posture and hand position. In the beginning, we focus on using the correct embouchure to produce a sound using a proper buzz. We also learn to place the mouthpiece into the trumpet and where to place our hands and fingers. Remember, your left hand stabilizes the trumpet and holds all of the weight so your right hand is free to move the valves. Watch these videos for assistance and have fun! Don't forget to buzz your lips and into your mouthpiece alone every time you practice!
