Any one ever have one of those days or weeks when your really good at trumpet ? tone wise, range wise and technical ability wise. then like the next week you try to play something you have played before and really suck at it?
like your tone and rage disappear ?
well that's happen to me :(
any idea why this is happening to me ?
Ive been playing for 5 years, and get help from a professional trumpet player/music teacher. and read out of Arbans weekly.
recently my teacher told me to work on arpeggios to help improve my upper register. i needed to be able to hit the high E above the staff. I'm only in my second year in high school, and my range typically ends at high B flat. sometimes i can get a high C on goods days. but i haven't been having those lately, i play lead trumpet in my senior jazz band and first trumpet in senior concert band. and i practice every day.
so any idea whats wrong? am i practicing too much ?
or not enough? i usually go for about an hour a day.
