Hi! I'm Lydia and I'm a 7th grader, cornet player but in the 8th grade band. I've been playing for 3 years now. It's really nice to be here. I found a new way to hit high notes when I was mess'n around with my friends! You can play from the side of your mouth and be able to hit a high G but it feels like your playing a lower G. It's really cool!
Hi Lydia, and very welcome to TM!
Nice to hear about your success in the band!
Hope you are goint to enjoy your stay in here!
Hey Dolly! Sweet!
Welcome to TM from the other side of Michigan!
I would keep the mouthpiece where it belongs!

Hey Dolly! I'm also from Michigan. Nice find with the high notes, but I agree with Solar Bell. Do you really want to get into the habit of switching your mouthpiece position every time you have to play a high note? Cheers, and keep up with the band. HSO
a mistake, Dolly
put the mouthpiece in the place that it belongs!
You're sounding swell, Dolly
I can tell, Dolly
you're unknowing, you're still growing, hopefully, blowin strong!
I hear the flames coming
let me help before the riff-raff kills your chops, now
a routine, Dolly
makes you play real mean, Dolly
Dolly will overcome the urge to cheat!
My advice: breathing exercizes, long tones, lip slurs, easy tunes to build chops, every day for the rest of your life. I presently have 3 girls, 9 and 10 that have no trouble with c above the staff after 1 to 1 1/2 years of lessons - without moving the mouthpiece around.
The problem is getting a solid sound when playing FAR off center.

Whenever I feel blue, I start breathing again.
Welcome to TM, Dolly, I agree with Rowuk.
Welcome also, from SW Michigan. Keep up the good work, but listen to our Poet Laureate, Rowuk. Early bad habits can be hard to get rid of later. You have a good adult band up there to grow into when you are older.
