Check out the embouchure!
Don't laugh... a girl playing french horn came into youth symphony auditions with virtually the same embouchure! Yikes! It was painful to watch her struggle. Her lips are deforming! I don't know how her teacher could let her continue like that.
It makes you wonder if he's really a player, or just a model posing as a player. His chops are C-R-U-S-H-E-D crushed!
Sounds like a great teacher.
No way he's a player... no bloody way. Now one who makes any money at playing.
He's using the "lip grip" made famous in the little-known "Pucker for Power" method. It's one big advantage is that the mouthpiece will never accidentally slip sideways. Pretty much always gets a 60/60 setting too.
You might think that they would use an actual musician to be in the ad. You really have to be uninformed to think that an embouchure looks like that! Also, where's the funny hat? It seems these days that in any portrayal of a "jazz musician" there has to be a funky suit and "hip" lid worn by the player.
The left hand position is a litle funky too...
that trumpet he is holding is a piece of crap, there is a water key on the third valve slide, which unless that is custom which is unlikely, is a sign of a cheap trumpet, also there is no right thumb loop, and it looks like lacquer instead of gold plating
Wait! Is that his pinky on the 3rd valve?
