I have a litle question for you trumpetmasters. When working on my range, I have noticed that my facial muscles have to work a lot to get the high notes (everything above the A above the staff) and I see the good players play relaxed like they play in the middle register. How can I work on that? I can get the notes out up to the high F but without any power or volume, just a tiny note (above high C) and I believe is because of my facial tension when going higher. What exercises can I try to get my upper register more relaxed?
Thanks a lot!!
