Is it normal for a player to have a sharp decrease in Bb competency after starting Picc? I purchased a yamaha piccolo and am thrilled. I progressed quickly and am starting to piece together the tartini trumpet concerto. However, when I go back to my normal trumpet I can't play nearly as well as usual. My playing sounds extremely mellow, I can't play above d in the staff and my projection is a joke, I used to be able to easily play high e. I am thinking about dropping the picc but it's so much fun and I feel great when I play it. Is this normal and is there any trick to getting around it? I've been doing vizzuti exercises which seems to be helping a little bit. But not a huge amount. The amount of notes I am missing in school band is becoming embrassing. HELP!?
