Pro musician here recently taken up the trumpet for the first time. I began studying, watching tutorials and learning the finger patterns months before I finally bought a trumpet so that I would approach the early stages with a clear idea of what I was aiming for and what I was trying to avoid.
It's going well so far, but...
When I use my practise mute (Bremner SshhhMute) I find it impossible to double tongue without a weird "eee" sound as I am changing from an open "Too" to "Koo" ...... So it sounds like "Toy Koo" or "Doy Koo"
Is this something that will go away as I build up strength practising with a mute or do you all think I have a fundamental problem I need to correct early?
Thanks for your help gang, very glad to be here
