Kristian Steenstrup

Professor for trumpet at the Aarhus University and regarded one of the finest music pedagogues of his generation, Kristian Steenstrup is regularly invited all over the world to give workshops and masterclasses with the major orchestras and music schools to help students and professionals improve their playing technique.

Fundamentals

The closest you can get to 1-on-1 lessons with true masters teaching and explaining in great detail the fundamentals of their instrument

In this class, you will learn about the great benefits the Song and Wind ideas have to offer your own playing on a daily basis. No magic – simple and down to earth ideas and exercises you can apply directly and will see improvements in your playing immediately. Be ready to get surprised of the extraordinary changes these methods and exercises will have on your own playing – being a brass, woodwind or even singer or string player. It’s no exaggeration to say it will dramatically change your playing even after a few days work with these simple yet very efficient exercises.

LESSON PLAN

01 Intro

Steenstrup structures out the class and what you can expect.

02 Song and Wind

Song and Wind is an important aspect to understand, a "movement" that has ever since its debut changed the way any wind player deals with breathing and blowing.

03 Posture

The correct posture can give you 20% more capacity, so looking this lesson is good if you need to play longer phrases without running short of air.

04 Breathing Exercises

Simple and super efficient breathing exercises can make an enormous change to your playing. Steenstrup shows you a handful of them.

05 Breathing Devices

There are a number of simple yet highly efficient breathing devices out there that will help you expand your capacity and make your breathing and blowing freer.

06 Solo Breathing program

Steenstrup shares a daily breathing program that you can do together with him before you start your daily playing. This will loosen you up and get your air going easier.

Tried the exercises while watching this video and it has already helped. Sustained notes are longer and tone is better. Thank you for such excellent instruction. Very easy to understand and follow with immediate results!

Masterclass great, very nice, I will continue buying him masterclass, and other trumpet players such as David Bilger, etc. I'm a trumpet player from Brazil, in love with the trumpet. My money once again was well spent, I'm buying my breathing apparatus. Hugs Higor Brazil. Ótimo Masterclass, muito bacana, continuarei comprando os masterclass dele, e dos outros trompetistas, como David Bilger e etc. Sou um trompetista do Brasil, apaixonado pelo trompete. Meu dinheiro mais uma vez foi bem gasto, já estou comprando os meus aparelhos de respiração. Abraços Higor do Brasil.

This class has helped me to a better understanding of the breathing anatomy, and it has provided me with useful daily exercises which I do since. Money well spent :)

exellent video, for all wind players! Kristian made me discover something important, but that seems too obvious for most of us: more air= more sound.

gabriel genest

I found the video very helpful. My only reservation is there is no information on where/how to buy any of the breathing devices used.

Breathing lesson with Kristian Steenstrup makes my playing easier. Now I can make music without thinking about lips. I practise this excercises every day.

Lukasz Mizera

An invaluable tool for any aspiring musician. Mr Steenstrup's insights and advice towards breathing have now become the building blocks of my daily routine.

I have several PlayWithAPro's for trumpet and horn. This is perhaps the one I have used most. I have the Breath Builder and the Breathing Bag and I use these exercises every day.

Ole J Utnes

I was happy to learn about Mr. Steenstrup through PlayWithAPro and even happier after watching this video. What a great approach to breathing. An immense inspiration for my own playing and teaching!

Luc Nijs

It was the wonderful masterclass, really it changed my way of study and I can do a real progress that is reflected in my diary study of my instrument which is saxophone. I study classical saxophone. If the professor can make a masterclass with a classical saxophonist it would be the best!. Thank you a lot

Wychariy

Wow! What an intuitive approach to breathing. This video has helped me with my breathing immensely!

Brenden Goff

Even though I'm a Jacobs Student I need to keep confirming what I was taught by Jacobs back in the early nineties. And what else to do than turn to my old friend and collegiate Kristian Steenstrup? Kristian approach and knowledge is at the level of Jacobs himself! I can't recommend these videos enough no matter what level you perform at!

I once had a masterclass in breathing with Mr. Steenstrup, and it was simply amazing! My sound increased almost 70% in quality and clarity in just 10 minutes. I'm sure this video also can help you.

I am a beginner on the flute, having taken it up at the age of 64 upon retirement after a long career. Getting the breathing "right" proved to be one of the most difficult issues that I faced. I found this video to be a revelation - literally. It is clear, direct, and provides practical exercises that have worked for me. If I ever have the opportunity to meet Mr. Steenstrup in person, I would thank him for making this video. In a word, it is wonderful!
