Hey Everybody I'm having a lot of trouble in band class at school not blasting. My band director says that I've come to the point where I have enough air behind the notes, but that now I need to control it. What sort of things should I practice to learn that control? Today I tried playing as high as I could, but quietly. I have no idea if that works. My high notes seemed very fuzzy. Also, I'm getting a little discouraged. I practiced at least an hour a day all summer, and I think it was good practice, but all of the other trumpet players are still much better than I am. I'm confident that none of them picked up their horns over the summer. What's with that? Thanks!
