What has helped your upper reg. the most?
What exercies were the best?
Having my wisdom teeth removed! 8)
(I'd thought I would make you feel better)
1. Lip slurs
2. Interval studies
3. Learning to play very low
4. Time, and lots of patience!
1. Playing quietly in the upper register before trying to blow the walls down.
2. Clarke Study #2 -- when you reach line #44, go back to #34 and do it up the octave.
3. Playing lead part in Marching Band
Learning to breathe.
1. The idea that Chicowicz, (sp?), Pops, Bill Adams, and others have taught that the higher the pitch, the *farther away* you should blow. A low G "rolls out the bell" (I'm quoting Pops here) and "a double C is 80 feet away", rather than feeling like I'm 'lifting' notes up higher.
2. Learning *not* to pressurize (i.e., between the lungs and throat) before the note starts. Arnold Jacobs taught that your body can produce any velocity and air pressure instantaneously. The air pressure should be at your lips, not your throat.
3. Listening *really* closely to how players with great high registers sound and imitating that (as in, what does it sound like when they slur or start a high note cold, etc.). This also helps in hearing the sound of the note clearly in your head before you blow.
THanks everyone, execpt musicandcharacter
work on the concone lyrical studies for trumpet and horn, when you can play them well start transposing them up by half steps.
