I began developing a program known as Trumpet Momentum over 15 years ago. Trumpet Momentum is a physics-based approach to brass playing and my original business model would have developed this educational resource right along with my trumpet research and development. But I didn't have the time or financial resources to pursue both Harrelson Trumpets and Trumpet Momentum so I set one project aside.
I decided to make 2016 the year I set Trumpet Momentum back into motion. I have developed the program over the years, but key components have not yet become reality.
Momentum Top/Gyroscope - demonstrates physics principles and parallels to brass playing
MiniBell - experience pure resonance on all partials to implement Trumpet Momentum performance principles
ASAT (Air Speed Aperture Trainer) - combine all physical factors to master balance in all registers
All three of these tools are essential in applying the Trumpet Momentum approach to each participant's practice and performance. In short, Trumpet Momentum is the only comprehensive physics-based approach to brass playing ever created. The success rate of this program has been extremely high. If you want to become a better brass player, I encourage you to review the the blog entries on my website to learn more about the Trumpet Momentum program.
Trumpet Momentum will launch in 2017
