In this masterclass, Prof. Thunemann proposes the student different exercises based on scales and arpeggios. First, they practice the C Minor scale regarding the air control and its proportion.

Thunemann mentions trumpetist Dizzy Gillespie in relation to the amount of air in the mouth, and then they work on the support and breathing while playing this scale. The student practices it several times faster and legato.

Afterwards, Thunemann suggests the student to play different arpeggios, correcting its tuning. Finally, the professor mentions some issues referred to registers and embouchure.
