    Daniel, I didn't realise how small the graphic would be until I posted it - the original looks much larger. I, too, am struggling with notes above the stave and everyone has the same song to sing - Practice, Practice, Practice. It's not easy, but it sure is satisfying when everything comes together. Keep at it, search for musicality - let it sound nice, always, and then the temporary lack of range is not so frustrating. Pactice your scales at least once per week - there are only twelve common ones, but about 96 in all - know these, and you are ahead of the game.

    How about a good teacher for both of you? Someone who's been there, done that and knows how to teach it would make life a lot easier and keep you from devevloping bad habits trying to increase your range. Find a good trumpet teacher.

    This post is in the trumpet forum, which is the right place.

    Practice does make perfect and more practice does not make more perfect, but reduces the time needed to get there. The level of musical perfection is more a function of your ability to appreciate things "beautiful" than building muscles. Listen to EVERYTHING beautiful that you can get your hands on - and then try and do it yourself.

    Thanks Bob, I have a teacher who cut his chops in the Grenadier Guards in the UK as a professional trombonist, but he tells me his true love is trumpet. He plays as a professional trumpeter/trombonist here in Sydney and has run the Brass programme at one of the local private schools for about 30 years. While Derek and I haven't had a regular weekly lesson for about twelve months, he is available whenever I need a top-up. I have been using his guidance to advance, and I guess it's time for another couple of lessons. Thanks for your suggestion though.
