Hi !

In this file http://www.trumpetguild.org/journal/d96/9612Mcgr.pdf Roy Poper talks about 'pivotting' near the end of the article.

What is Pivoting ? Pointing the horn up/down when you descend/ascend ?

Pivoting is the action of tilting your head up, and, usually pulling your lower jaw as you play higher and tilting down and pushing your lower jaw out as you descend on the trumpet. Some people use it to their advantage, other feel that it constricts the throat too much as you hit the extremes.
