It has been a while since I've had to play truly 'legit' music. It has been a while since I have had any fundamental intruction. I have been playing mostly jazz for the past 15 years and I am now in a position where I need to do well in an orchestral setting.
I was listening to another trumpet player practice, and was amazed by the quality of his sound. Not only on long notes, but every single note in a fast 16th run sounded big, full, wonderful etc...
I don't usually have problems being able to reproduce sound tambres that I hear, but this is proving to be difficult. Sustained notes are easier than runs, but my big problem is how to practice.... I'm not even sure I know how to practice correctly anymore.
So, I guess my question is how do you go about 'from scratch' building a big beautiful sound, a sound that is simply part of the way you play, every day??
Thanx a million
