    K I'll search for them. I assume it was eventually determined it is like doing ab workouts for range/airspeed too.

    You just took a MAJOR step backwards! The embouchure, breath support and tongue are used in completely different ways not complementary to the trumpet.

    NO IT CANNOT! ONLY TRUMPET PLAYING HELPS YOUR TRUMPET PLAYING!

    I agree with Rowuk in that playing/practicing through evolution builds and evolves you as a better player. The late great tubist of the CSO, Arnold Jacobs was an outstanding teacher to many wind instrument players, woodwind as well as brass. His advise was to think musically developing an internal aural concept of playing.

    Many mechanical aspects of playing are in motion however concentrating on these physical concepts create what Arnold Jacobs called" paralysis through analysis" which undermines our artistic development and our ability to evolve and grow.

    I believe the concept of syllable awareness provides a safe way to get on the right path as tounge arch shouldn't be in our conscience mind, but becomes a natural byproduct of playing musically. The physical component becomes natural if you concentrate on playing musically. Yes I believe that the tounge does arch to facilitate pitch changes and is a key component, but to clog our mind with that as a focal point vs. striving to playing musically by "listening" to the great players to develop your concept/style is pursuing a path wrought with frustration.
    Just an opinion.

    yes but be careful. I've found that the male goats are especially skiddish.
