    baritone?

    First, I apologize to WHS if it seemed I was putting him down. Not intended. I do believe, however, that terminology as to what a note is called should be universal, and double high C has been used since the walls of Jerico came down.

    Most importantly, I think we are all in agreement on this subject. We're just approaching it from different perspectives. Improvement has come from the reasons stated, but it probably isn't a fix-all for all players. Concentration on your primary instrument, practiced correctly, will accomplish the same thing.

    Re: baritone?

    I like the way you put that.

    It is worth noting that some players( Hagstrom, Herseth, etc) do use the bass trumpet and baritone to some degree but I dont believe that they see it as a fix-all that can take the place of normal trumpet practice.

    I didn't mean to sound like I think baritone is a fix all for trumpet problems. Obviously you have to practice the trumpet to learn to play trumpet. I just meant that it is helpful to some people.
