    on contrary, you have to play low, if you play high you will wore your chops after 1/2 hour of playing. Thing is you have to play at least 2 hours at once w/o breaks, than the progress will occur, you cannot do that if you scream high C and above all the time

    I never said to abandon actual playing,interpretation, tone, intonation, articulation ,or any other musicality . Why do you assume if a player develops range all else is missing? The reason range above high C is needed ,is because music is written above high C ,not only in jazz band ,but also in concert band and orchestra. Range is just another aspect of trumpet playing , like double and triple tonguing, slurring , tone , endurance , phrasing etc.. Why would you want to omit anything that makes a player a complete player?

    yes, I know that you didnt tell that, but I actually know people that are so frustrated with their range that they became obssessed with range, and playing high, they donothing but roll their lips, applying enormous amount of pressure, etc, etc, just to squeeze out that high E or whatever

    they are ruined as a trumpet musicians, ruined

    Well I am amazed, 3 pages and no mention of a mandatory Double C. ...OOps
    There you go, said.

    And of course...Yes, Yes and more Yes's is the only way.

    That's so wrong! The best way to practice is with taking breaks, often!

    if you play low, you do not need brakes, capisci?

    if you play high you need brakes

    itys like athletics, if you rjogg you can jogg for 2 hours, but you cannot sprint 2 hours


    and jogging is the way to go

    And most sprinters cannot run marathons, and probably have no such desire.
