TME Podcast Season 2, Ep. 15 Tips for Brass Tone Production
The number one most important musical element in performing is quality tone production. In this post, we will discuss issues and tips for brass instrument tone production. Each instrumental family produces sound in different ways. It is helpful to review what is necessary to create a fantastic tone, whether it is to create the perfect buzz, manipulate how to breathe, or change the mouthpiece pressure. A characteristic sound instantly sets apart the impact a brass musician has on his or her audience and the overall musical experience.
Several factors contribute to creating a quality tone. It is conceivable that two players on the same type of instrument, with the same model of the mouthpiece, can create two very different tone qualities. Sound production differences include the size and shape of the oral cavity, the breath supply, how well it is supported, the openness of the throat, and the lip aperture.
