Is the quest for high notes really that important if your not going to work professionally.
Making golf clubs i came across loads of 18+ handicap players who could drive the ball much further than me, but had lost site of the object of the game, get the ball in the hole in the least number of shots. No one wins by hitting it the furthest unless thats the aim of the competition. Long drive.
Do they have that in trumpet high note shoot outs highest note wins?
