FLEXUS - Trumpet calisthenics for the modern improvisor As the subtitle says, this book is trumpet calisthenic for the modern improvisor. But what does that mean? The Introduction in the book says the following: To improvise effectively, the physical act of playing needs to be a conditioned reflex - freedom of expression is only possible when the physical demands of playing are under control.

To this end, FLEXUS asks the student to momentarily put aside the study of music itself and instead practice the muscular movements involved in playing the instrument. A central idea in their teaching is exposure to repetition: Learning comes through exposure and repetition - you expose yourself to what you want to learn and then repeat the exposure. The great brass teacher Carmine Caruso used the analogy of a baby learning to walk; the baby experiences nothing but failure in its attempts until the first successful step.

It does not judge itself for its failures, but simply tries again. What we call coordination is just the synchronized movement of muscles in time. When given a consistent tempo, muscles coordinate much more easily. This results in muscular balance, which leads to greater facility and endurance. These preliminary studies are used to stabilize the embouchure before being exposed to more challenging exercises.

The rest of the book is divided into different types of studies: Flexibility Pedal Tones Quick Register Changes These studies are divided into subsections, 3 sections for Flexibility and Articulation and 5 sections for Quick Register Changes. When the student has mastered section one, he can move on to section two, etc. In addition both authors talk about different subjects like, Thoughts on practicing, How to use this book, When to move on and How to apply calisthenics to music.

If you have never done a lip bend before, it is great to listen to how Frink perform it. Or, how to play the exercise called Flexando? Just listen to the CD.
