    I'm no professional :shhh:

    I am currently in High School and I have been playing the trumpet for 3 years. What's below probably isn't really a challenge for most of the users on this site.. :oops: :-)

    Is anyone willing to listen to my playing and critique me? Maybe play it once so that I know I'm not utterly screwing it up?
    I'm notorious for my uncertainty and I think it's a bad quality to have if you do play the trumpet, ha ha.

    If you're interested please shoot me a pm :roll:

    Thanks a lot! : )

    Ahh, it reminds me of audition sight reading crap I've gotten in the past. I'm no pro, but if I can help I would be happy to!

    As slow as this is, it is the "molto rit" (ritard) that kicks my butt.

    As you say, it's not all that difficult for those with a little experience under their belt. There are a lot of meter changes and I see that you've already marked the beats in some portions, which is good. Don't freak out over the 16th notes. All that black mentally intimidating. But it's not that fast. Take it slow to start with, develop muscle memory for what your doing, then slowly increase speed. The rhythms and fingerings actually become somewhat easier in the 16th note section. Take it slow and one step at a time. Speed is the last thing you should worry about. Be methodical and only move on when you can do everything right. Hope this helps.
