I don't have a teacher right now but would like to try diving into the Stamp book. I thought maybe between youtube videos and this "how to" book I might be in good shape. Just wondering if anyone has any opinions on this book?

It has been working for me for a number of years. Over time my accuracy and consistency improved tremendously.

If you are talking about the book by Jean-Christophe Wiener, then it is a useful book, as is Roy Poper's "Commentaries on the Brasswind Methods of James Stamp." Plus, lots of useful info here on the TH James Stamp forum.

If at all possible, get some lessons from someone who studied with Stamp or Poper. They can help you to understand important concepts in Stamp's book that are not always easy to explain in writing -- down to go up/up to go down, etc. Virtu Academy offers inexpensive online lessons with Olivia Pidi and 3-4 other Oberlin grads who studied with Poper.

I was lucky enough to study with a Stamp student for a year. I'd be curious to see how they compare.

I use Tom Steven's "Stamp Warm Ups" book on a daily basis starting with lip buzz, mouthpiece drill and then the basic warm up. Helps me keep in touch with how my chops are at the time I try to return them and my mind to the playing optimum. Really great when I've been beating myself up on a difficult gig. (BIM Edition, can find anywhere.)

I studied with a Stamp student for many years. As much as I like the book I don't feel that it stands alone and that you really need to go through it with a teacher who can show you how to approach it.

There's a nice set of threads in this forum, linked through the post "Dissecting Stamp Threads".
