I am a high school senior in New York, studying lots of interesting stuff including Comp Sci and music and math. I play the trumpet, flugelhorn, bass, and guitar. I have used Apple gear (Macs, iPhones, and iPods) for years, and have become a cheap IT guy for local small businesses. I have recently started iOS development, see my website for more info!

comment Jazz mouthpiece for flugelhorn?
I appreciate the recommendation, but I already have a great 'normal' mouthpiece. I really do need something that will give me just a bit more range for the occasional piece that has stuff above C.

comment Adding French Horn to Trumpet and Flugelhorn?
The technique is alike but there are several differences such as breath support and much different slotting, not to mention that while the mouthpieces are similar, they are not identical.

comment What are good techniques to bend notes on brass instruments
Don't play tuba, but I know on trumpet you can lip it a bit in either direction.
