Is there anybody who does not know who George Graham is? If so, I'll let others answer your question for we are talking about a great person and a great trumpet player who has made many recordings and movies.
Many trumpet players have asked how he could play so high and so clear and he mentioned that he developed a Range Builder exercise to help accomplish this. He said that it is best to practice this with a buddy. He also advises to rest for as long as each unit exercise takes to play so as to not over work your chops and give them time to adjust, etc.
Any way, if you would like this Range Builder, send a personal check with the following added: $10.00 for 2 (best to practice with a buddy), plus $2.00 S & H in the USA, $4.00 S & H elsewhere. Check to be made out and sent to

Because mail is not always reliable, it helps to send an e-mail when the check is sent. The exercise itself is only a couple of pages. But it does work.
