Set a regular time to practice, Find a comfortable well lit quiet place to practice preferably the largest. room in the house to help with sound development,Practice standing up not sitting.

Developing instrumental technique is much like an exercise workout teach your. muscles by doing a little bit daily, Take frequent breaks if you are more advanced and practicing more than 45. minutes per day Sessions of playing longer than 45 minutes can cause muscular. problems such as tendonitis or carpal tunnel syndrome if one does not rest. frequently, Don t forget that the ultimate goal is not to produce the notes you see on the. page as you would type in words on a keyboard The goal is to produce beautiful. music Never forget to listen to yourself and make music as you practice Try. to mimic the sounds of your favorite players, To the Commanding Officers of the Household i e Parents.

Breathing is the MOST important aspect of brass playing and is the FIRST thing you should. practice every day Great breathing will aid in fixing every playing problem However most. players never practice their breathing This breathing drill helps to practice controlling the. large amount of air needed to play The most important part of this drill is to STAY RELAXED. This is especially important during the suspend portion of the drill Suspending the air is NOT. holding your breath Your throat should stay open during this entire drill Suspend the air by. simply not breathing in or out while keeping your muscles totally relaxed Sniff a small amount. of air at the nose to be sure that you are suspending your air and NOT holding your breath. Drill Sergeant s Orders, Do all five parts of the drill one after another to achieve maximum relaxed respiration. Finish the eight count drill and go on immediately to the four count and so on. The first part of your body to expand during inhalation is your mid section. During the eight and four count inhalations suck in the air at the lips as if you were. sipping a milkshake through a straw slow and steady. For the eight and four count exhalations put your embouchure into the playing position. with the opening small enough to provide resistance Blow steadily all the way to the end. For the one count inhalations your mouth should look like you are eating a hot potato in. order to inhale quickly, Remember to breathe or exhale all the way to the end Do not allow yourself to stop the. breathing motion during this exercise,SUSPEND your air don t hold your breath. Set your metronome to,Inhale Suspend Exhale Frequency. 8 counts 8 counts 8 counts pp Do this 2 times,4 counts 4 counts 4 counts Do this 3 times. 1 count 4 counts 4 counts Do this 3 times,1 count 4 counts 1 count Do this 4 times. 1 count none 1 count fff Do this 7 times, Some players find it useful to pretend to pull back a. bow during inhalation ready remaining in the fully. extended position during the suspend portion aim,and watching the arrow fly through some far away. target during exhalation fire,Embouchure Boot Camp Tuba. MOUTHPIECE BUZZING, Your first playing of the day should be done on the mouthpiece The instrument itself just acts. as an amplifier for the sound that you produce on the mouthpiece Therefore if you have a full. rich sound on the mouthpiece you will have a full rich sound on the instrument Mouthpiece. exercises should be done at a full dynamic level They are the perfect follow up to the. breathing drill because you will not be able to achieve a full buzzing sound without great. breath support where you can at times get away with less than great breath support while paying. the instrument,Drill Sergeant s Orders,Support your sound at ALL times. Use a piano help with the pitches in each exercise Play the pitches on piano first then. mimic with the mouthpiece If you don t have a piano handy play a reference pitch on you. instrument first Don t worry about the transposition. Play each drill at a forte dynamic level, Concentrate during the entire drill on achieving a full even buzz on every note. In order to achieve a full buzz keep a steady embouchure and anchor the mouthpiece on. the bottom lip Use less pressure on your upper lip than on your lower lip This allows. the more pliable lip upper the freedom to buzz resulting in a bigger more focused. The glissandos are an essential part of this drill Make them as slow and even as you. can This way you practice bending pitches a skill necessary to playing in tune in an. Embouchure Boot Camp Tuba,YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT,Great improvement can be achieved by simply. listening to great tuba players and trying,to mimic their sound. Listen to one of the greatest tuba players,of all time Arnold Jacobs Arnold was the. principal trumpet of the Chicago Symphony,Orchestra from 1944 1988 44 YEARS. In the recording on the right Arnold Jacobs,teams up with the Philadelphia Cleveland. and Chicago Brass Sections for The, Arnold Jacobs Antiphonal Music of Gabrieli This is one. of the greatest brass CD s of all time,CHECK IT OUT. Embouchure Boot Camp Tuba,STRETCH DRILLS, The first notes you play on the instrument should be very relaxing After your embouchure is. warmed up after the mouthpiece buzzing drills your lips are ready to produce the first tones. of the day The first notes should start in the comfortable middle range and gradually stretch. to the outer registers of the instrument much like an athlete preparing for a big game. Musicians are after all athletes of the small muscles. Drill Sergeant s Orders,Support your sound at ALL times. Play all stretch drills at a comfortable mezzo forte dynamic. Concentrate on keeping a full sound in all ranges These drills are meant to be played. in free time If a note does not feel comfortable hold it until it does The second. exercise in particular should be played freely Hold the top and bottom note of each. phrase until your embouchure feels comfortable,Embouchure Boot Camp Tuba. Lip slurs are one of the most essential drills in Embouchure Boot Camp These drills are. basically weight lifting for your embouchure however care must be taken to use the. correct muscles while lifting the weight slurring to the higher note. Drill Sergeant s Orders,Support your sound at ALL times. Drills must be played with a metronome making every effort to change pitches. precisely on time,All notes must be slurred NO TONGUING. Use the first fermata note to set the embouchure for the highest note in the. slur Set the mouthpiece on the bottom lip first Effort needs to be made to keep. the embouchure at this firmness The lower note is achieved not by loosening the. embouchure but by thinking oh inside the mouth In order to play the higher. note think ee inside the mouth With a consistently firm embouchure the pattern. of ee oh ee oh creates the lip slur, If soreness is felt after the drill it should be felt in the corners of the mouth. not the center If you feel soreness in the center of your mouth concentrate on. playing the lip slurs with the least amount of mouthpiece pressure possible. As you get more advanced concentrate on keeping as open as you can inside your. mouth This means you must have a very strong embouchure and great breath support. but will produce a more beautiful sound,YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT.

SINGLE TONGUING, Articulation refers to how the player begins and ends a note Tonguing is a specific kind. of articulation that creates a clear start to each note There are two primary forces at. work in this drill that you must coordinate your air and your tongue The air must stay. constant throughout the exercise while the tongue gently flicks the air steam. Drill Sergeant s Orders, Support your sound at ALL times Think about increasing your air speed all the way. to the last note,Drills must be played with a metronome. Think tu for a clear start of each note Focus on making the T very fast but. light The note should start with the T articulation then move quickly to a full. Tongue BEHIND your top teeth not in between the teeth It is tu NOT thu. Be careful that you don t place a T at the end of a note resulting in toot.
