    Yeah, I realized that after thinking about it for a while. No change will be made. :)

    Yes, it is possible to scream really loud with the TCE. I have studied with Jerome Callet in NY, who teaches this embouchure can scream effortlessly.

    Whether the TCE is for you or not is a personal preference. I have tried it for years. I get better but still suck at high notes. Everyone is different, with different levels of natural talent. I'd take a few lessons and see if it helps. If it doesn't, go back to doing what you were doing.

    A side note to the some of the replies I've read here. Guys, be nice. The sour comments and cynicism I have read in this thread are demoralizing, at best - mean-spirited, at worst. This kid is in High School, for cryin' out loud. He asked a simple question and was questioned for asking the question ("Is a bright piercing sound something you REALLY want?" Geez...) He needs our support, not our baggage.

    Or, perhaps there is something to this old joke?

    JOEMAG3 - caution, when making jokes and opening old threads (this thread is 3 months old) -- otherwise Rowuk will tell you "nobody cares about an old post" and wolfmann will ignore your "schill" posts and claim you have an identity problem --- LOL

    Just read through this thread and there are some good advice here but you said about your youtube channel I had a look and could only find one video of you...
    YouTube - My Blue Devils Audition

    was that really your audition?.....

    ive never really messed around with embo's apart from one known to NickD as the high-low gear, where basically you develop a second emobo around your natural one and basically all that happens is you bring your bottom lip up to create a smaller appiture its taken from Walt Johnsons book double top C in ten Minutes.... hasent worked for me yet, but it has some brilliant high range studies, the high gear hasent really added any extra notes but I feel when using it my 'top few' notes are alot easier and im using less pressure so must be working.....

    I hear the wedge is another good embo for lead players although I really dont know anything about it

    here is Nick explaining the high low gear
