I damaged my lip from "Just Playing" probably not thinking about the damage I was doing by using pressure and over-blowing. I was on the road 7 years with an average 450 shows a year. I would begin to hurt and so I'd suck it up and play through it. Then I separated the muscle and could not play .
I learned a tough lesson. I learned that what I was doing was counterproductive. Since that time - 1974 - I have made a change and now play without pain and have the range and endurance I need.
During my years self inflicting damage to my lip, people would say how great I sounded, how beautiful my sound was, my range was a consistent double D and I honestly believed all was well and that the pain or swelling or discomfort was all a part of road life. I knew a lot of guys that agreed.
After taking a new look at what and why I was doing I found that pain and swelling were not a given - no way!.
I know tons of great players who say just play the natural way - just blow and let your sound be your guide. etc. etc. I firmly believe that they are playing - whether from a naturally trumpet-friendly set of chops or luck or a teacher that set them up correctly from the git go - without needing to think about what they are doing and in many cases couldn't accurately tell somebody what they were doing to actually play so well.
This leads to a lot of confusion and misinformation. Playing the trumpet is for the vast majority not a "natural" physical event. Understanding the basics of how an efficient embouchure works should be at the forefront of a new students thinking.
The guys that read this page are mostly players with some degree of success and perhaps many have come into playing easily with a predisposed physiology for trumpet or brass performance.
I have taught easily 3 or 4 thousand students in schools and private lessons. Trust me - very few come to it naturally.
What is more surprising is how many players give up after school. Quit after not making it in local musical groups, and some who lose it all when as a pro they ruined their chops.
I personally believe that every player needs to understand the basics of the trumpet embouchure. The 4 or 5 things that every method overlaps on. I make every effort to promote education in my website gRawlin.com and my pages here on FB.
I am not dogmatic about a my way or the highway - I am dogmatic about beginning players being shown the basics of the embouchure AS APPLIED TO THEIR ANATOMY!
One of my great sadness's is when I meet a player who has been working for years in the trumpet world and finds himself slipping down a painful road to loss of work and enthusiasm.
The majority of my teaching via Skype is with these players. The thing that hurts is that they just never really either thought about how they played or worse were never taught the basics.
It is really tough to turn it all around after 20, 30 years of trial and error.
My wish is that TEACHERS would tackle the responsibility of teaching the why and how we get a sound and build a lifetime embouchure just 1/3rd as much as they tackle the musical skills portion. When you receive a solid foundation in both areas you have a chance to enjoy the trumpet - make a living - etc. What is bad is when you are not sure at all how your chops work and you are teaching beginners to just "play naturally."
