I hate trumpet players who think that the most important thing about playing trumpet is high notes…. and then the director gives them all the good parts because they can hit high notes but they arent good musically otherwise…..
I have to agree> I’m sorry but i have a very extended range, and yes it comes in handy sometimes, but parts are written for a reason, parts should not be played up an octave unless it is written 8va! Plus many players have the crazy range but have no idea how to control it. However, if the parts are written in that range, the player should lean how to use the technique musically.
