There’s a picture of Maynard as a kid which I saw recently. Unfortunately I can’t find it right now.
Anyhow. His embouchure looked great even then.
Does anyone know when he developed his range? I imagine he was a ‘natural’.
I know Wayne Bergeron says he picked up the trumpet after playing the French Horn and started playing doubles right away. I wonder if it was the same for Maynard. It seems his face, lips, teeth, were all in the right position.
