Just wondering how I can improve my trumpet range. I am a senior in High School in Tucson, Arizona and I plan to march in the pride of Arizona Marching Band at the University of Arizona. Although I'll be a rookie next year, I still plan to aim for lead player status, the highest note I can hit consistently (so far) is an F above the staff. I wanna' reach that double C by next year. So, what are your tips and tricks? Excercises and Methods? Please do tell.
