Fellow trumpet player here going into trumpet performance and keeping a tough regimen looking for info about too strong of a tone color.
Haven't picked up my horn in a week so I figured I might be a little rusty. I started to record myself playing one of my pieces a kid I tutor wrote for homework out f boredom because I haven't in a while and when I listened to it, the sound was just a little odd. My recording system has always worked very precisely and correct for all of my other recordings so a recording error wouldn't be the problem.
Anyways, if any of you pros wouldn't mind listening to some rusty playing and telling me why I don't exactly sound like a trumpet anymore and whether or not it's a good or bad thing, I'd really appreciate it. :)
My director keeps telling me to stop working on my tone. Is he right? :s
I apologize for the tuning/tonguing/range issues, I'm usually a looooot better. Rough day.
Thanks in advance!
