Frequently asked questions


In this video, Markus Arnold explains the importance of practicing with a buzzer compared to just mouthpiece practice for brass players. Arnold explains that when practicing with an instrument or a buzzer, the lips do not have to actively vibrate, but only an airflow is created. This looseness can then be transferred to the instrument. He recommends holding the buzzer in the weaker hand to reduce the contact pressure on the lips and practicing only to the middle register. Arnold stresses that it is important not to press too hard on the lips and to use lip force. He also explains that the hole in the buzzer is to mimic playing with an open instrument. Arnold concludes by saying that you can't go far wrong when practicing with the buzzer, as long as you play clean melodies. More details on the "buzz-r method" are explained in his workshops.

In this video, Markus Arnold answers a frequently asked question: Which Buzz-R embouchure trainer fits my mouthpiece? Since there are a variety of mouthpieces on the market, Arnold recommends measuring your own mouthpiece at the point where it is inserted in the instrument's leadpipe. A meter stick can be used to determine the width of the mouthpiece. Based on this measurement, the appropriate Buzz-R embouchure can then be selected. For example, if the mouthpiece is about 11 mm wide, the Buzz-R attachment trainer would fit for 11.3 mm. There is a list in Arnold's online store that shows the matching Buzz-R embouchure trainers for different instruments and mouthpiece widths. For example, there are Buzz-R attachment trainers for French horns with 8.2 mm, cornets or flugelhorns with French shank with 9.8 mm and trumpets or flugelhorns with German shank mostly with 11.3 mm. For tenor horns, baritones or trombone mouthpieces, you simply measure and then see if it is 12, 12.5 or 13.5 mm. The exact size helps to find the right Buzz-R embouchure trainer.

In this video, Markus Arnold explains how to properly care for the Buzz-R attachment trainer. The Buzz-R attachment trainer is made of natural tonewood and is already treated with a special Wandel oil when it is delivered. However, daily use of the buzzer adds condensation and finger sweat, so regular care is necessary. For care, the locking plunger is removed and the supplied care set is used, which consists of three small and three large sticks as well as oil. A drop of oil is applied to one large and one small stick, oiling the inside and outside of the buzzer. The buzzer is then rubbed with a dry cloth. The small stick is also applied with oil and passed through the small hole to take care of hard to reach areas. After rubbing again with the rag, the locking plunger is replaced. After this care, the Buzz-R attachment trainer is like new again.

In this video, Markus Arnold answers the question of how long you should practice with the Buzz-R approach trainer every day. Arnold recommends practicing for about five to ten minutes a day, for example on the way to work. This short but regular practice time is sufficient and even more beneficial than a longer but infrequent practice session. It's important to think of practicing with the Buzz-R approach trainer as a continuous daily routine, rather than intensive practice just once a week. Arnold emphasizes that it's best to practice for about 10 to 15 minutes each day in the middle position, without playing too high so as not to create a feeling of pressure. With this method, 10 to 15 minutes a day is enough to practice effectively.

In this video Markus Arnold shares his recommendations for effective exercises with the Buzz-R approach trainer. He advises simply replaying the warm-up exercises you normally do with your instrument with the Buzz-R approach trainer. Playing along with tunes from the radio or a CD is especially effective, even if you play them an octave lower. The Buzz-R embouchure trainer is not meant to replace practicing with the instrument, but to maintain and strengthen the embouchure. Watch the video to learn more about these practical tips!

In this video Markus Arnold explains the purpose of the large plug at the end of the Buzz-R approach trainer. This plug is important to maintain resistance while playing. Without it, playing with the Buzz-R embouchure trainer would be similar to playing with just the mouthpiece. The plug is also used to clean the Buzz-R attachment trainer. Watch the video to learn why it's so important to keep using the stopper!

In this video, Markus Arnold explains the purpose of the two holes in the Buzz-R approach trainer. These holes are used to increase resistance by pressing on them with your finger, much like a recorder. Arnold shares his personal methods for using the holes: when he's on his way to a concert or rehearsal and knows he'll be playing with the instrument soon, he leaves the hole open. However, when he is in the car and his mind is more on driving than playing, he closes the hole. When playing with the hole closed, he uses a lower intensity, as if he were breathing hot air onto his flat hand. With this low airflow, he is able to produce a tone despite the high resistance. He then practices scales, triad breaks, and various airflow exercises with the closed hole. He emphasizes that playing with the closed hole helps create a looseness that can then be transferred to the instrument. This leads to a significant improvement in the endurance of the embouchure and prevents fatigue. This is the secret of the Buzz-R embouchure trainer and the two holes.


In this video Markus Arnold talks about the challenge of playing the C3 on the Buzz-R approach trainer. He explains that there is a natural break between B2 and C3 due to the length of the Buzz-R embouchure trainer. However, with a lot of practice and control over the lip muscles and tongue position, it is possible to achieve the C3. Arnold shows how he achieved the C3 by taking the C1 reference note and then gradually playing it higher. He emphasizes that you should practice patiently and carefully to reach higher notes.
