    My upper register sounds better if I:

    Focus on good sound in lower register
    Practice easy approaches (scales) to high notes daily going high as I can
    Don't over practice the high notes
    Do quick "warm downs" after sessions, especially if stressed
    Make "high notes" a piece of the puzzle in playing the trumpet and not the whole puzzle

    You need a biology class. The diaphragm can only help us fill up with air. It can't push anything out. The abs that we use for "pushing" are usually what mess up young players trying to "force" things because the face and breathing are not synchronized or ready for one another.
