Song and Wind – Charles Vernon style

I stumbled across an excellent YouTube video of a masterclass given by Charles Vernon, bass trombonist of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. He speaks on a variety of brass concepts in regards to Song and Wind, a methodology of the late Arnold Jacobs. The main ideas in the video include having a sound concept in your head, good air movement, and using rhythm to coordinate all physical aspects of playing (breathing, embouchure, articulation, and valve or slide movement). Enjoy!
