Trombone Triangle

The trombone triangle is a concept first introduced to me by musician extraordinaire Maestro Alain Trudel.  As he described the triangle itself represents the volume of air (high register = less air, low register = more air), the swirls represent the aperture of a brass embouchure (smaller aperture = higher, lower aperture = lower), and lastly the TH’s and D’s represent the tongues position in the mouth relative to the range being played (low range = forward, high range = deeper in the oral cavity).  His concept was that you must have these three elements correctly aligned to play a well centered beautiful note.
