Developing flexibility is one of the most important aspects of mastering a brass instrument. Since its publication in 1923, Richard Shuebruk’s three celebrated works on the subject of lip training have served to teach many brass players how to build fast and accurate flexibility of lip usage through development of the musculature. This collection combines all three levels of Shuebruk’s original texts into one volume that will belong in the library of every young and developing brass player.
Developing flexibility is one of the most important aspects of playing a brass instrument. Since 1923 Richard Shuebruk's three publications on the subject of lip training have served to teach thousands of brass players how to build fast accurate flexibility through musculature development. Shuebruk calls for accuracy through slow patient work on first, attacks and then simple interval studies.This collection for the first time combines the three levels of the Shuebruk texts into one complete treatise on the art of lip flexibility, which will become the seminal method by which brass players study this art. Though these exercises sometimes seem daunting, Shuebruk advises the student to take it slowly and methodically. To this end, Shuebruk has stated, "There is no shame in playing slowly and neatly. There is no pride in playing quickly and slovenly."From my own experience as a brass player the fine art of lip flexibility was elusive. Hours of practice were devoted to improving the speed of my flexibility studies with as little embouchure movement as possible. I am confident that this collection will enable you to realize the goal of Richard Shuebruk, which was to build flexible and accurate "chops" while improving the quality of your overall playing. Remember speed kills. Good luck! - Larry ClarkEditorCarl Fischer, LLC.
