Taking a Breath

When learning to play an instrument it is so important to learn how to breathe properly for your specific instrument. This lesson reviews proper techniques for taking a breath while playing the trumpet.

Key Points

  • Breathing on trumpet is done through the corners of our mouths
  • While playing, we open both corners and let the air in without removing our lips from the mouthpiece
  • This allows us to continue playing after taking a breath without having to reset our lips each time
