So I was in my H.S. orchestra class today, and I told my director it was difficult for me to hit the higher notes and I told him that this uncomfortable pressure forms at the nose. Anyway he mentioned that this trumpeter by the name of Godfried Wright (SP?) died from cerebral hemorrhaging from having too much trouble playing the trumpet. He said he was playing a natural horn so it was alot harder to hit the different notes. I found it pretty interesting and I was searching some articles about pressure and cerebral hemorrhaging and didn't find anything. Plus I see all these pros playing all the double C's and such. It's kind of scary knowing that can happen if you try really hard to hit the notes. Kind of scared me away from trying. Just something to discuss.
