So as i'm sure this thread exists many times over, i will bring it up again in hopes someone can find a way to drill it into my head. In high school i always had a very bad tension problem (neck, shoulders, face, anything else you can imagine,) and its been a long process, as most things with the trumpet are. My low and mid range are in a spot where tension doesn't really exist but anywhere after f-g on the top of the staff it's so inconsistent its hard to have the will to play any lit. well. I notice in my basic work that i can warm up, (thompsons buzzing book) and feel great, and really i feel pretty loose all day. But as soon as I get out the ol' SCHLOSSBERG out i feel myself get tighter and tighter. I'd like to punch lip slurs in the face. (also, i do have a private teacher, i just think multiple ideas never hurt) This is my first post here, so as jumpy as this thread just turned out, any tips on tension?!?!?!
