Trumpeting in C
I did not write for a while about my trumpet exercises, but I continue them, and can say that I have some progress. I could not call it something exceptionally cool, but I already can play without major problems within 1.5 octaves, and move into half of the small octave after warm up. Also can start and play some notes at the end of the second octave, probably sometimes I can get 3C (trumpet one, it is two half-tones less than piano).
And what I really like is how I play tones: sound is clear and I can easily move between the notes.
Except that I do not really play notes. I sometimes can pick out the tones, but usually not very complex melodies. What I want is to play the melody just by listening it. When I start playing I understand when things are wrong, but I can not say where is the right note. Recently I started to memorize intervals (by simply playing 2C and tones below), I think I do not yet know them good enough to easily pick out needed interval, also music I listen is almost never produced by the trumpet or similar brass instruments, but I think it will sound very interesting if played by trumpet.
The whole weekend I actually did not learn, but finished the appartment development: cleaned the area and completed small things. And you know, I can say now: appartment development is really over. Point.
I’m enjoying this monday, hope you too. Stay tuned!
