How to Play High on Trumpet Without Pressure

Playing high on the trumpet doesn’t need to be difficult.

The Stratos Brass website has all the resources you need  to help improve and streamline your embouchure from books on the embouchure written by the Embouchure specialist Marcus Reynolds  to devices which will help train your embouchure to achieve those high notes with greater ease.

This high-quality embouchure system is simply attached to your instrument or mouthpiece whilst you play or practice. STRATOS Performer reduces mouthpiece pressure and ensures a good jaw position taking away the need to “think” about position and pressure. Practising with STRATOS Performer re-educates your muscles and nerves and allows you to adopt your improved embouchure position naturally, even after you remove it from your instrument. This allows you to concentrate on other aspects of your playing, and you can relax back into better and better performances. STRATOS Performer has been shown to help solve many embouchure problems. It also gives improvements in power, range, tone, and stamina allowing you to play with more ease and greater flexibility.


I’ve realised over the years that many problems with brass playing can be remedied with very methodical preparation of the facial muscles. By mastering this, you will get much more enjoyment out of your playing. This groundbreaking program will allow you to achieve much greater range and flexibility.

After using Range Without Resistance, most players find they quickly improve in power and tone. Firstly, you can play more efficiently and effectively. Secondly, you can reach notes that you struggled with before. These become so easy to play that at last you can fulfil the potential of your instrument.
