Trumpet Tao: High Intensity Interval Training

"It is better to have a warrior in the garden rather than a gardener in the war field


The Trumpet Tao includes several exercises grouped into different series according to their purpose, in order to acquire the most useful and necessary techniques to improve endurance, strength, power, flexibility, sound and range for the Trumpeter.

Most exercises may sound slightly familiar. To facilitate memorizing I used some well known melodies and other routine exercises, although implementation will be very different as an end or another is pursued.

This humble trumpet player conceived this method from a physical and anatomical plane, so that all the exercises are based on the gymnastic training of the actors involved in the implementation process of the trumpet (facial and abdominal muscles, respiratory system, etc.).

Basically, it seeks for a stronger and more resilient muscle, on which exert greater control, which in turn allows us to optimize the air and energy."
