So, I'm at a crossroads in my young musical career.
I was at a university for music education, but Im back at home this semster, but will be returning next fall. While I was at my university, I made it to assistant principal horn of the university 's 2nd endsamble and horn studio, and was playing at a pretty decent level, especially for a freshman.
Anyway, while I've been home, I've been playing trumpet more. I played it though highschool and marched dci on it, but never as my main instrument.
I realized I loved trumpet so much more than horn, and that I was having more fun on trumpet than I have ever had on horn.
Has anybody switched like this and can give me advice on if this is a good call?
Also, I need mouthpiece advice. I'm playing on a bach 3 c right now, but I get tired quickly, after about an hour, and I feel like the witdth is affecting my range.
Last thing, is switching a good idea?
I'm not terrible at trumpet, after about 2 weeks of daily practice I'm getting halfway through arban's 1st charecteristic study and I'm working on the first variation of brilliant fantasy in the arbans book.
