Daily Intellectual Training (DIT)

The D.I.T. is a device, which is set on a mouthpiece. This device enables us to direct the airstream either through an instrument or past an instrument. When the airstream goes through an instrument, it is the instrument that makes a sound and when it goes past an instrument, it is the mouthpiece that makes a sound, but there are also states between the two possibilities. When the airstream goes through an instrument and the D.I.T. is in its open position, we deal with normal brass playing as we have known it up till now. In all the other positions we come upon something that is completely new.

I use DIT and I can tell you that is really interesting stuff. But you must have a lot of nerves to work with it. You must persist with it and not give up!
