Hello there! After my constant struggle to play with an equal tone throughout all the registers of the trumpet, there are signs of definite improvement in my playing and tone. I now feel that my high Cs and Ds sound as good as my mid Cs and Ds, but the problem is that they don't feel easy yet. So I was just curious, does it ever get to the point where you have no problem belting out high notes. I can play pretty high relaxed and effortless in a practice room at a comfortable volume, but if I have to play those high notes in the context of Copland's 3rd for example, it would still sound decent, but I'll be pushing myself pretty hard, so, with the use of that example, was the second movement (or the whole piece at that) of that particular symphony something you considered to be physicaly easy? It sure sounded like it, but I was just curious how you felt afterwards. Was it a walk in the park, or did you go home and ice yourself down? And if it was pretty easy for you, which I'm assuming it is, what are the methods used to get to that point? Thanks a lot!
