    If you read posts by Rowuk, you'll see that his most often repeated message is this:
    "progress is measured in months and years"
    That's worth reflecting upon. Years, plural, as in 2 or more.

    I think I do. You just have to ignore it and push forward. That mindset really held me back in high school. That and a 7C mpc! :lol::lol:

    OK - time for kingtrumpet to whip out the same old worn out message that he always does in these cases.
    As a comebacker - in my opinion - a double High C (the 6th space above the staff) can be had with diligent, focused, intelligent practice in about 2500 - 3000 hours. Oh you can "hit" the DHC in less time, and in the few 1000 hours you can sort of play it in a scale, and occasionally end a song with it.
    this all takes time.
    maybe this guy (Keith Fiala) can help with his website.

    you need a "relaxed" embouchure to vibrate -- and YET a strong corner, lips, face set to hold the "relaxed" embouchure.

    YOU will probably end up playing the trumpet corresponding to the time and mindset that you put into it -- if you want to play between the C's (low C to High C) -- that is probably where you will end up -- if you want more -- it takes desire, learning, patience, and practice,....etc.
