Hi, I am teaching trumpet and I can use some advice regarding a student.
He had played for one year when he came to me and has now been my student for 6 months. He holds the trumpet very much down, he has like an overbite and blow downwards. I have been working with him to try to stand up properly with straight back but he is stuck in his old position and when he has the trumpet almost straight out he cant see the score because his head is then tilted back so his eyes are looking in the ceiling...
I am trying different methods to reverse this position but if anyone of you know some good method or exercise to get out of this habit I would be happy to try them.
