Here’s what people are saying about Lip Slur Melodies
I love playing these because they are beautifully melodic and every note is coming from or going to a natural slur. I think you have really hit the essence of Arnold Jacobs’ teaching. This makes it easy: just blow air and move your lips and slide with the rhythm. Thank you, Brad Edwards !!
