Publisher's Summary

Do you love playing but can't put in enough hours to keep your chops in top shape? This little book describes simple isometric exercises that can help to keep your face in shape. And if you're already in great shape, this shortcut will make you even stronger; the best shape of your life.
Within only a few days of doing the exercises during his daily commute, a top principal trumpeter for a major European orchestra reports that his chops are in "the best shape of my life", and that his colleagues are complementing him on his tone, range and endurance.
Part-time players report full-time chops! This technique allows you to achieve in only minutes what would normally require many hours of practice time in terms of muscle development of the embouchure.
In a revolutionary new approach to improving performance on wind instruments, author David Boe unveils unique set of exercises that allow musicians to strengthen the facial muscles, and do so without playing the horn.
Combining scientific research on muscle development with decades of personal experience and observation, Mr. Boe has devised a completely original method that has proven tremendously beneficial to brass and wind players at all levels, including the highest level professional performers.
