with a bit of time on my hands over the break have been just playing with the trumpet, making sounds.
Have found when playing lower C and G i can move the pitch/tone by relaxing and tensing my lips. can also do this to a more extreame amount below C, and lesser amount above the G.
Now i am really enjoying this and feel its helping me take control over the horn.
my questions are
1. should i be doing this, will it help or hinder my progress
2. does it have a name
Unfortunatly due to a change in finance i will now not be able to take lessons so have to go it alone.
Just a reminder i have only been playing for 8 months and am 52 with no past musical ability, (my kids say that i still dont have any!)
