    Default Buzzing on a horn mouthpiece

    I'm not too sure on how to change pitch while just buzzing on the mouthpiece, or maybe how to practice just on the mouthpiece.
    My Tenor: Antigua 551LQ, STM 6*/Vandoren T20
    Alto: I use whatever available, S-80 C*
    I put up with a lot of people's BS.

    Use a tuner.....make sure it is set on 440....buzz. Play a Bb. To raise the pitch, constrict...to lower,relax. Do this for ten years.

    Or have a look at this.

    Several good lessons here, but there is one on Buzzing on the mpc.

    Hi there,
    Just first: Do you mean to buzz a brass mouthpiece ? If so which instrument are you interesting in e.g.trumpet or trombone or tuba or other ? I would gladly continue if any interest.

    I think that is the intent. You are the first person to notice that this is posted under brasswinds.

    Chunsoo - go to youtube and search "how to buzz on a trumpet", "buzzing high to low", etc.

    Don't spend a lot of time buzzing at any one time. Also, don't get frustrated if you can't get much range out of buzzing. My buzzing is horrible but I can play from a double pedal G to around double high C - although it won't knock any walls down. My point is that the buzzing inside the mpc when it's hooked up to the horn is working even if the buzzing only on the mpc without the horn is not. It works for many, but for some it does not.
