I just had the extreme pleasure of meeting and hearing Jens Lindeman & Joe Foley during a Friday Master Class / Concert performance! Incredible. . . They performed the Carmen Suite Together and Jens did and awesome performance of Allen Vizzutti's "Rising Sun"
During the masterclass Jens talked about "anchor Tonguing" which in my own experience I have never really used. I am coming from the tongue striking behind the top teeth (school of thought / playing) Ta Ka or Da ga (double tonguing). He explained it as placing the tip of the tongue behind the bottom front teeth. and having the front arch of the tongue toch the roof of the mouth? Am I getting this correct?
Knowing full well, there is NO one size fits all when it comes to Trumpet technique, could someone expand on this for me and explain how one would go about experimenting with this technique. Jens said it kept his Toungue level at a point whereby he always kept the maximum amount of comression and never had to worry about his air or sound dropping out especially when making octave jumps etc. . . .
Is there a method book that could help me figure this out a little bit clearer?
any feedback welcomed___ Thank you in advance
