Tips from Denis: Embouchure Advice for Brass Players

Ian Bousfield


Denis Wick once said, "Eventually, when you're talking about playing. you've got to do something with bits of metal because the human body can't do everything." If we look at the second half of that statement, we can all agree that you can't really play a brass instrument without a mouthpiece. And, that mouthpiece has to be designed in a specific way to be playable. However, we are looking at the first half of that statement today. The human body part of that equation: the embouchure. What is the perfect embouchure? What does it look like? Though Denis Wick is a trombone player, this simple advice and instruction is true for every instrument.
