He has you do an exercise of playing a “G” second line until you run out of air. He took over the lead book and was dying until he started playng with this type of diaphram support.

Bob was my first real trumpte teacher at MJC as well. 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.

You don’t use the step that has you holding the breath for a few seconds, and you raise your shoulders at the last part of the inhalation.

Bob’s Six Note excersizes are great – helped me a lot. I’d like to check out the Yoga findlsy techniques mentioned here and see how they compare to the Penzarella thing which actually comes from a lot of Arnold Jacobs teachings. Given Bob’s credentials and abilities, I take this counsel very seriously.

Yes, my password is: 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.

The book is great and a must in my mfthod collection. Apr 22, 7. He’s a really fabulous teacher, and is worth having a lesson with if you ever get the chance. Here’s a link to the breathing info: Apr 19, 3.

They are usually so tense with their upper bodies, that they fihdley physically let go and allow it to happen. Just learning how to do the relaxed inhalation is beneficial in itself.

Bud Brisbois, according to Bobby, showed him how to use it. 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 riff in the low register.

I just purchased Bob Findley’s Method Book which looks very good. I went to a Findleh Ferguson clinic many years ago, and he suggested that we learn to do Hatha Yoga breathing. Penzarella also wouldn’t advocate holding the breath for a few moments since that can bring tension into play. What an amazing “first” instructor. Search Media New Media.
