Bobby Shew uses the Yogi Complete Breath, that is modified somewhat to play the trumpet. I credit a ton to both him and Chuck especially for setting me up and making me think that the trumpet wasn’t difficult.

Apr 19, 2. I just purchased Bob Findley’s Method Book which looks very good.

Bob was my first real trumpet teacher at MJC as well. Apr 22, 7. Bud Brisbois, according to Bobby, showed him how to use it. Given Bob’s credentials and abilities, I take this counsel very seriously.

They are usually so tense with their upper bodies, that they can’t physically let go and allow it to happen.

Bob Findley – Trumpet Player – Professional History – Brass Instruments – Method Book

Apr 19, 1. I had some master classes at Maine Jazz Camp with Bob and Chuck Findley when I was younger, and got to spend a good deal of time hanging out and talking to them, also.

Discussion in ‘ Trumpet Discussion ‘ started by gregephApr 19, Here’s a link to the breathing info: Bob teaches that this is the way the diaphram should feel at all times to provide support regardless of whether your playing a loud lead passage or a simple yrumpet in the low register.


He has you do an exercise of playing a “G” second line until you run out of air. Apr 19, 4. Do you already have an account? I found the running out of air concept to be similar to the Claude Gordon studies – very helpful.

Apr 20, 5. Penzarella also wouldn’t advocate holding the breath for a few moments since that can bring tension into play.

The purpose is to feel how much you need to use your diaphram as you run out of air. It’s trumpet world name is the “Wedge Breath”. Can anyone comment on this, i. When they do get it, it does help a lot.

Bob Findley’s Method Book

I definitely want to check out this Bob Findley book. I’m sure most of you know about his philosophy on breathing and being relaxed — avoid tension was a mantra of his.

He did not specify the “wedge breath” or Yogi Complete Breath.

Some of the things that he talks about aren’t necessarily Carmine Caruso things, fndley he did study with him, and uses some of the terminology in the book. Search Media New Media.

Specifically, it fijdley like I can draw on the support of my diaphram instead of my lip. He took over the lead book and was dying until he started playng with this type of diaphram support. Caruso, and expressed that he is very greatful that he had the chance to study with him. He didn’t like to talk about diaphram support or embouchure much since he thought proper breathing would automatically take care of all that.


He does speak very highly of Mr. I’d like to check out the Yoga breathing techniques mentioned here and see how they compare to the Penzarella thing which actually comes from a lot of Arnold Jacobs teachings. He has his students doing breath excercises on a 5 liter respiratory bag to get the sensation of filling up and expelling air without becoming tense in the upper body — something like a bellows — air in constant motion.

Hi all, new here.

The Other Side of the Bell – A Trumpet Podcast; Episode #20: Bob Findley

Apr 19, 3. Yes, my password is: I just looked at the page referenced above The Science of Breath Bobb 8: David Monette’s website discusses “Take a Breath” – same sort of concepts as far as Fijdley can determine, see: Apr 22, 6. I think that all the concepts that he talks about are excellent, and he has been in the middle of the LA studio scene for many years. The reason for my post is that I wanted to see if anyone has experience with Bob’s thinking on support.

Bob’s book is excellent! Just learning how to do the relaxed inhalation is beneficial in itself.
