    Was curious how everyone does it.

    I used to use the vibrato where I would interrupt the air, like a woodwind. Then I changed to the jaw vibrato.

    Theres also the type where you slightly move the horn off of the embochure with your hand.

    Was curious what everyone else does to get out their vibrato, and hear some opinions on the different vibrato styles.

    I've always used either airflow or lips, but mostly lips. I find that if I try the 'hand pressure' method, it completely screws up my playing. I'm still trying to stop myself playin with vibrato on lyrical stuff after 15 year in brass bands!

    A little lip and a little hand. The smaller the trumpet the more lip.
