    I cannot take credit for that....no less a person than the esteemed Principal Trumpet of the Minnesota Orchestra brought the works of Molarian Curley (sometimes spelled Courley) to this site.

    It IS a good study though....

    Oh come on guys, I'm asking a serious question here... may be if I rephrased the question is this piece even possible to play at the stated tempo, then I may have received some answers, but that kind of question could have offended some professional players. That's all. Nothing in the Arban's goes that fast and I suspect nothing in any of Clarke, Saint Jacome or any other method would go that fast either.

    Trumpet...

    There is NO answer to your question....

    Only, how fast can YOU tongue?

    There is no speed limit and no way to say how fast someone can do it.

    The more you practice, the better you will get until you reach YOUR fastest speed.

    What more can we say????

    Well come on guys, surely there is a reasonable limit.

    No matter how far into the future we go nobody's gonna be able to single tongue sixteenth notes at quarter=500.

    As for single toungue, I've heard that Herbert Clarke could play steady sixteenths for 90 seconds straight (no breath!) at quarter=160. I don't care who you are, that's pretty impressive!

    Can anyone beat that?
