    Can you get up onto the third or fourth partials like this? It seems like you'd have to really cram the mouthpiece against your face pretty hard ... I guess she certainly does it, though.

    This is where you are wrong... There's plenty of room in my baggy paints for Ms. Helseth.

    I am not sure what you mean by third or fourth partials... Are you talking dentures? Got may entire set of teeth, except for the wisdom teeth... which for me explains a lot.

    If you are talking range, this technique if anything has increased my range to super human levels.

    Not true at all... Phwoooo starts the brass vibrating better with less pressure, less cramming the mouthpiece against the face.

    I just had a quick blow on my mouthpiece (it's a bit late for full horn! 21:15) and I see what you mean now! I'll have a play tomorrow haha

    Well, I don't think I have to worry about being super-human or super-anything for a while on my trumpet, but I'll just keep plugging away. :-)
