Hello, I've been playing my trumpet for about 3 months, and I'm making good progress, I can play the low E all the way up to the Eb almost two octaves above, but I have questions about playing that high.
I understand not to rush my range, and I'm not, I play long tones and am achieving a better and more resonant tone each week. However, I am pretty stuck on the Eb. It is difficult for me to hit, and I typically need to play a slurred scale up to it to get it to resonate.
I also get tired very quickly, in a minute or two, of playing those Ebs. My embouchure weakens and air slips out of the sides.
Is it really just a matter of continued practice? I've been stuck at the same level on this Eb for two weeks now...
