TCE Power Training Book Out Now!

A couple weeks ago Robert J. (Bahb) Civiletti and Niranjan (Nini) Wijewickrema published a new book about the Tongue Controlled Embouchure. It is packed full of historical information about playing with the tongue between the teeth as well as 170 pages of exercises and drills to build and maintain a virtuoso embouchure. Below you can read my review of that book, which is published on Bahb’s website ( The new book can be bought on that website for only $65.

“Finally a book that deeply explains (with citations) the historical narrative and modern-day relevance of the tongue controlled embouchure! All of that coupled with exercises that provide a true brass-player’s workout whilst teaching you to play correctly and develop awareness of your chops – this book is a game-changer in understanding how to become a proper virtuoso musician. There is no nonsense in this approach to playing; no time wasted on gimmicks or bravado strength building; just sensible development of the key aspects of embouchure control and real power.I have had this book for two weeks and the exercises have already added another level to my development. All aspects of the TCE are combined into efficient tools that train your embouchure and easily show any weaknesses.

I wish to congratulate both Robert (Bahb) and Niranjan (Nini) on this compilation of knowledge. Hopefully the brass community will embrace your wisdom and bring about another golden age of brass music!”
