A trumpet player’s strength determines his or her range, endurance and tone. To build strength is to improve all three.
In this clinic, Eddie Lewis teaches a formula for growing strength and how to apply that formula to your trumpet practice. He will teach the students how to challenge the muscles without risking physical damage. Then he will teach them how to rest without any strength loss.
All of this is done within a musical context. Eddie does not (and never will) teach high note exercises. Eddie’s students increase their range by growing their strength while practicing music. That means the strength they gain, and the range and endurance that goes with it, are entirely applicable to real musical performance.
