As trumpet players we are often caught up in the search for high notes.  If we have a balanced practice routine, and take time to let all aspects develop, given time amazing results should occur.

Here are two videos that show- high notes. Both players are relaxed, have beautiful sounds and make it look easy. Note they are about making music, not just brute force high notes. In the Barry Danielian video he starts the triad on third space “C”- I have been trying this approach out, but began on low “C”.  For younger players, I think low “C” is a great place to begin.  Then go up by half steps as instructed in the video…my students are trying this too! I think you will be happy with the results.
