The title is ridiculous and the exercises are hard to bare for the neighbourhood. But after a longer break in playing or before concerts they are great to make the embouchure flexible and smooth.
Partitioned like a cure of ten days with several exercises for each day. It is all about changing register and extreme dynamics. The exercises help to make the lips flexible.
