    Ok, it wasn't totally clean and definitely not terribly well supported...


    I hit g above the staff (not the one on the staff, the one above that).
    First time ever.
    Its a start.
    Yay for me.
    Okay, I'm going to go to bed now.

    If your playing high notes now, it's recommended that after a high note routine, end it with what Claude Gordon calls a " Lip Relaxer." And rest for least one hour. Playing only in extremes will be detrimental.

    A high note routine should include:

    > Wind power exercices
    > Upper register exercises
    > Low tones for relaxing the lip
    > Tongue level exercises

    Re: Whoo-hoo!

    Congratulations! You know it's funny, when we hit a note for the first time, even though it's not pretty, it's encouraging because at least we know its "there". Now that you've hit it, the hard part is being able to play it musically in all dynamic ranges and articulations with control and good sound. I'm still working on that with my f, f#, and G on top of the staff. I can "hit" up to a Bb and hold it for a few seconds but it always fizzles out. The G tends to play sharp for me. My old teacher told me to practice playing them softly first, because that gives you control of the note instead of just "hitting" it. Good luck and congrats again!
