    Hi can some one advise on how to play this piece a little lower. If you dont know it, it starts off on third space C sharp and goes up to C sharp above the staff and a b flat above the staff. I have tried an octave lower but it losses the impact. Is there another option where perhaps the C sharp above the staff becaomes F sharp and all the other notes follow as they should in F sharp major?

    What's the problem?
    Outside your range?? Then pass the part and come back when you get stronger.

    That range should be playable by a normal advanced embochure... maybe you just need some more shed time to get the chops stronger.
    I can't imagine trying to change the melody of a known tune in a solo part and being successful.

    Yeh thats the one, trumpet 1 and trumpet two play the same part, i play trumpet two, this is a litttle too high at the moment.

    layout, or play just the C# & rest of lick down an octave. (C#-F#-A#-back down to C#). Give the 8va guy something to lock onto. One stone cold steely eyed killer playing the lead part should be all it takes.

    Hi, do you happen to have either a copy of this trumpet part that I could buy/have? or let me know where I can purchase it from? I'm hoping to join the band at my wedding next year to perform this, can't find it anywhere.

    Thanks

    I second giving parts to people that can play them. If you don't have the chops, you should be playing another easier part until you "earn" the spot with your capabilities!
