I wanted to get a consensus here- if that's even possible- on what everyone considers normal playing range? Let's leave out Lead Range, that's another thread entirely. What I want to know is what everyone thinks is the normal range for an accomplished amateur to professionals when it comes to concert bands, jazz bands, parade bands, etudes, exercises, etc. I think this would be good for the younger players out there to gauge what they're looking for. I'd especially like to know from all the teachers out there what they consider it to be? I'm saying normal range is from Low F# below the staff to High D above the staff. What say you?
