I post this here with a modicum of trepidation. I don't mean to imply by this that my way of playing is the best thing out there. It is simply what I do that works for me. In any case, after much careful thought, I have decided to honor the request of the students who have come to me asking me to do something like this - online trumpet lessons. I opted into a sort of video blog online text book. I am offering it totally for free. http://www.nickdrozdoff.com OK, I have the first four video clips up. Here are the general ideas covered. Long Tones - sotto voce Clarkes studies - sotto voce Chord studies for range building - up to F over double C Embouchure Design covering lip buzzing, ring buzzing, BERP, lead pipe buzzing and false scales. This is a work in progress and I'll be refining and adding to it on almost a daily basis for a while. Here is the website: http://www.nickdrozdoff.com Follow the menu bar at the top to "Online Lessons." Be sure to READ THE TEXT for each video clip. There will be important added information there as well. To my friends who are not trumpeters and just jazz fans who might be reading this, thanks for your patience on this. This effort is in answer to the request of many trumpeters who have contacted me at one time or another. Peace. Nick Drozdoff PS: All I ask for in return is that anyone who uses this material and finds that they are benefited even slightly, consider buying a CD. The CD's cost $15 and you get a hard copy CD sent to you, in addition to the free-trumpet lessons (I charge $50 per hour for private lessons). If you read and watch the material and can honestly say, "forget it! I already knew all of this and there is nothing here to help me. I'm not buying anything," no worries. This is an honor system and it good you at least looked it over. There is an expense in maintaining the site and an expense in time and effort to put the material together. I hope folks who benefit consider this tiny way of helping out. 'Nuff said.
