John Thomas - Trumpet Secrets Revealed

Oct 24, 2011

This sensational DVD covers all the essential topics that will make you a better Trumpet player! Techniques include forming your embouchure, warming up, the three kinds of air, how and what to practice, singing through your horn, mutes, cleaning and much more. Also features interviews with Snooky Young, Maria Schneider, Wayne Bergeron, Ingrid Jensen and Bob Reeves, plus a tour of the Calicchio Trumpet Factory.
Mr. Thomas, a lead trumpet man of some repute (Basie, USC professorship) compiled a well thought out video that answers all questions regarding playing this special instrument, one of the most physical things one can do in music. He's the son of another great musician, Don Thomas who served as an early inspiration for John after gravitating to trumpet post drummer boy. What's beautiful about this presentation is how Mr. Thomas relates to his students in a personal, self-effacing manner and tosses ego out the door - HE has had the stage fright, HE has had problems with confidence and range and his equipment, but becomes abundantly clear, through demonstration and his interviews with some of the greats (Snooky Young, Ingrid Jensen, Wayne Bergeron) that this man not only knows his stuff but is as interested in advancing the art and skill of trumpet playing as he is in performing himself. It's a brilliant, accessible presentation.
