Doing long tones everyday are a great way to improve your trumpet tone. I provide you with a model to reference what a characteristic trumpet sound sounds like. This is especially important for developing/beginning trumpet players.
In this play-along video, you'll hear first hear clicks for the tempo. Then you'll hear me play longtones on trumpet. I play these six notes:
1) Listen to me play for two measures each.
2) Play exactly what you hear me play while I'm resting.
3) Or...Play when I play and rest when I rest. Play softly enough to fit your sound into my sound.
Things to consider:
*Use headphones to better focus on the sound of the trumpet.
*Be careful not to listen to the tracks too loudly. You will damage your hearing if you do.
*Play as softly as you can with a well-supported sound.
*Use a tuner but do not stare at it to fix intonation. Use your ears to help you adjust.
