Here's the newest installment of our mini-lesson series. This video talks about how I approach acclimating to such varied mouthpieces that I use for my own personal playing from day to day. Today is a fun day full of Skype lessons (if interested in scheduling times email info@austincustombrass.com). The Skype studio has had a good recent uptake in enrollment so please contact us today to grab a time.

A reminder that our ML series publishes 3 videos weekly on YT (Mon-Wed-Fri at 8:30 AM CST). If you have any suggestions for upcoming series please let me know.

I'll be heading to the TMEA show tomorrow and hope to see all of my Texas buds in San Antonio!

Enjoy the Mini-Lesson and thanks again for your wonderful support of ACB.

This installment of my mini-lesson series might be one of my favorites... and not only because I start it on a double C

Hope you are enjoying these lessons!

Greetings from sunny San Antonio (I'll be working with Adams this week at TMEA!)

Hi Trent,

I think your videos are great and hope all your endeavours at ACB achieve the success they deserve.

This latest video was interesting although I did want to, very gently, raise issue with this sentence near the start of the video.

'I think I can play pretty much softer than most people I know'

You then proceed to demonstrate some whisper tones. Without in any way wishing to be confrontational, I know a lot of my colleagues who have exceptional control of the whisper tone dynamic (its something I have worked on a lot too but in comparison to some of these guys my abilities pale into insignificance). The first trick is seeing someone take a slow and entirely controlled transition from silence, through whisper into full sound. When done without flaw (and I know some players who seem to have the knack) its quite something to hear. The second trick is producing a clear whisper tone around (and above) the top of the stave. Personally I never found how to do this without blemishes in the sound, but I have seen individuals who can hold (for instance) a flawless high C at that whisper dynamic, it always stupefies me to see it. And finally watching certain players take whole melodies and play them at a smooth (and unbroken) whisper; again, something I haven't ever worked out to the standard I'd like, but (to me at least) its a fairly awesome skill when you see it done well. By no means am I degrading your playing, or your video, but I thought I would point out that there are some top players who can take that whisper concept to amazing levels (very respectfully) beyond what you demonstrated in the video.

Nevertheless, I'm a big supporter of your channel and its content and wish you all the best with it!

Ps. I think its really impressive how you pick out those high notes beyond high G (double G, however you want to describe it) with such little strain and very accurate pitch. Great stuff

Here's another installment of our mini-lesson series. In this one I talk a bit more about Pedal Tones.

Have a suggestion for a mini-lesson topic? Please post them here online!

Thanks everyone for your great support of ACB!
