What I meant by the title was, My brain is fried... Rowuk are you able to help?
Sorry if that came across wrong in the heading.
I understood the title. I am also a sensitive guy!

I was playing once and afterwards, a little boy approached me and stated that he played the trumpet. I asked, "Do you play like I do?" and he replied, "I used to."
Hi there! The way you learned to play high notes was the way it was taught to me back in grade school, back in the 1970’s. I remember having books that were full of pictures of students doing what you describe. Uhhh…. THIS IS WRONG!! LOL! As an earlier post in this thread mentioned, you need to find a trumpet player/teacher and learn some real technique. Be encouraged! It sounds like you have musical talent and interest; a teacher will be able to take you to the levels you need to be able to perform what it is you want. Good luck!
