    Im not a trumpet player... but I can play Saxophone, Clarinet, and piano. It just takes practice. start at a high/low note you can play then go one step up/down until you cant play them. Just do that over and over then after a while you can play those notes without starting lower/higher and going to it.

    Also your emboucher matters. generaly it is tighter for higher notes, looser for lower.

    This is some pro tips, so please take them with ALL of your salts and not just a grain ;)

    Imagine you are a turtle. Make a turtle face. It will help you purse your lips properly for it. The less space inbetween your lips, the higher the pitch. There are also the key thingies on it :P

    Yeah I've started to pick up on that. Sometimes it's hard to play an A and it comes out as an E :p

    I thought it had the finger things xD
    Slurring isn't hard but tonguing is... I still don't understand how people do it so perfectly :/
