[quote=rowuk;467146]This is for all of you that have not yet learned the names of the notes.
Octaves start with C. High C is 2 ledger lines above the staff. The double octave starting with C is an octave higher. Here is a player that can really play these notes - not only in the practice room. Notice the thick lips. he uses the equivalent of a Bach 1 1/4E mouthpiece.
I usually don't don't respond to these posts but they are the reason for the confusion. Different parts of the country name these notes differently, here on the east coast a double A is above high C not double C , people I know on the west coast use the same name. The problem I see is starting octaves on C when the trumpet starts on F#. Who decided it starts on C and not F#, or for that matter any other note ? Starting on C names some octaves and has no name for others, I know what your talking about, but it can be very confusing for students who,s teachers might name these notes differently , and to then say "THIS IS THE ONLY CORRECT WAY" is really opening up a can of worms.
