    if I warned up well, I could maybe reach a E above the staff, I'm a crappy trumpet player compare to most... I hardly need to reach that high in Mariachi music, I think the highest I've gone in a song is a C# ontop the staff....

    I agree with you that not everyone will attain DHC. So it's semantics. I just believe one should not place impediments in a young/old/comeback players head/mind that they can't do something before they have really tried to do it. So if I am asked the question, my response will always be yes. It's the difference between "can" and "may" to me. I can't see any individuals future, so why put up a "roadblock"? Once again Rowuk hit the nail on the head by reminding all that it's not just range but musicianship that is most important.

    I think anyone can attain their best, their own highest note, but then again, I also think anyone can cook too.

    I believe that is a tautology.

    I am a big fan of Immanuel Kant and C.S. Pierce... so yes, it is a Tautology.
