I put "Perfect Pitch" in quotes because in this case there is nothing perfect about it... However, I have an odd problem here -- I can instantly sing or hum any arbitrary reference note [and it's associated chord tones/modes], or whistle said notes, or even free-buzz or mouthpiece-buzz them, but I am having a great deal of trouble applying that same pitch to the trumpet. I'm not having trouble with the mode/chord per se (relative pitch is not the problem here), but with the instant recognition with finding the initial reference note as it pertains to the trumpet. In my case I'm having trouble applying the physical sensations of the lip-buzz to the trumpet?!?! I think it is the 7 fingering permutations that throw me off, more so on the upper-registers (strangely enough). That is, I can buzz the note or an even octave of, but when it comes to actually playing that note on the trumpet my brain gets confused with the valve-fingerings. Furthermore, my lips get confused with the valve-fingerings because the lip-sensation seems to be the same for the 7 (descending) valve permutations for a given partial of the horn... To be clear here, i.e. my lips feel more rather than less the same playing a G on top of the stave as a 4th space E. This goes for any open partial between low C and High C... I have a few tricks to guess the initial note -- Concert Eb, Bb, C, F (or 4ths/5ths thereof) etc., depending on the instrumentation (Sax, Trumpet, Keys/Guitar...), but there is, of course, much more to music that those few keys, and my best guesses leave me hanging more often than not... In short, how do I learn to apply "pitch [lip] sensations" to the actual pitch of the trumpet?
