    No problems going from French horn in F to Bb trumpet to C to D and Eb as long as I hear the new pitch in my head, piccolo is a different beast, no problem hearing the pitch, getting a good sound requires a lot of dedicated work.

    The problem is the expectations in your head. If you switch to a smaller instrument and try to knock walls down, you will always fail. You need to get into the character of each instrument and cash in on the new possibilities. My students just pick the instruments up and play - after listening to me play. This way, the sound concept is clear from the beginning.
