Hey gals and guys, I am new to trumpetmaster and as my title implies I am a comeback player in need of sound advice. I am having trouble with articulation and tongueing, also I am using too much pressure when I start playing above the staff. I am playing thru the Rubank intermediate and advanced books as well as the Arban's book. I have tried playing pieces at a slower tempo and then speeding up the tempo as I progressed but with little success. Any and all help appreciated.
