EVOLUTION OF THE 16 WEEK BRASS UPPER REGISTER COURSE:
9-10 years ago, I had accumulated approximately 35-40 powerful and potent range building techniques. 3/4 of which were my own proprietary techniques...the rest of the techniques were my version of mainstream routines and techniques i.e. Gordon, Caruso, Stevens, Adam, etc...
THE GOOD/THE BAD: Back then, I would teach all 35 techniques in a 2-3 hour afternoon or evening mega lesson. I charged $275.
Although the techniques are awesome and were awesome then, not everybody was getting amazing results. It was hit or miss so some students followed up with me weeks later not too happy or some...even playing worse.
I was sooooo frustrated because these techniques were amazing and had produced results, great results in other previous students of mine.
It would take me another year of experimenting with other students ( sorry guys) and finding out what was missing.
What did I find?
The techniques worked, but 2 things were going WRONG during my mega 3 hour afternoon lesson:
1. INFORMATION OVERLOAD
2. LACK OF MOMENTUM
There was so much information to learn with these techniques and since most were mine? There was no foundation or frame of reference for the student. Simply too much, too soon.
No momentum" killed the cat" so to speak.
Because these techniques are so powerful, they are also injurious when swallowed in large quantities.
So, I experimented with stretching these out over a month, then 2 months, plus I was adding new techniques. Eventually came 3 months, then finally what you see today.
The FINISHED PRODUCT of what consistently produces results for everybody is what you see today:
My current 4 month, semester long Upper Register & Endurance Course containing 75 DIFFERENT Techniques infused with MOMENTUM!
In fact as it stands now, You CANNOT take this course as directed and not get amazing results. Even if you wanted to achieve nothing, you STILL would come away with a few higher notes added and an increase in endurance!
