Hi Where I live there is no trumpet teachers near by. Im also 'short' on affording the lessons but I am also very impatient by nature and when I wanna start I wanna start NOW, because I want to be good sooner than later. Any tips on what I can do from behind this screen? I know I can get a sound out of the trumpet but I dont want to be learning incorect embrochure either... and I cant find anything with up close explanation of what you are meant to do with your mouth. Are you ment to pull your lips in sort of like saxophone without bending bottom lip in? Are you meant to like 'smile' which pulls the lips appart and brings them closer to teeth Do you just have lips exactly how they are when your not talking and then just vibrate them in that identical position.... (thats how I can make sound) etc... Kinda need some direction/lesson on here if possible. I know theres a 'for students' thread offering mouthpieces etc... this isnt exactly whats in there but its still something 'for student'.... is it close enough to be helped?
