    Is there something I can study for speed? Or should I grab the metronome and jam to it always increasing the bpms?

    :-o :-o :-o :-o :-o :-o Is this the secret method that develops speed, extreme high register, improvization in 21 days?

    PS: I'm from Greece, so I may not get your slang :))))

    I wonder what music you'd like to play but are having difficulty with because you can't play the notes fast enough?

    Rather than just trying to play stuff as it comes into your head at various (increasing) speeds I suggest you pick something repeatable written down like The Carnival of Venice (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0-jDld11jhw sheet music: Fantaisie and Variations on The Carnival of Venice (Arban, Jean-Baptiste) - IMSLP/Petrucci Music Library: Free Public Domain Sheet Music ) which starts out pretty easy then gets more complicated. Play it at half speed (or whatever you can manage) - use your metronome - and work up from there. The Carnival of Venice isn't just about speed/short notes but being able to play pretty demanding rythms musically.

    How fast is the music you're aiming to play (again)? Something which sounds sort of fast is this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0MdmRexny18 but I think with some work and practice should be quite manageable, for example.

    High range is achieved by a different process that I call my phwooooo technique.

    The speed swoosh is achieved by any repetitive pattern or phrase run that is practiced over and over again to develop muscle memory. Anything that takes work away from the brain enhances speed.

    With swoosh and phewoooo you will rule the trumpet world.
