comment How to know what notes/chords go together while improvising?
I am not aware of the terms you are using, boxes and such, but does this help?en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jazz_scale

comment Why do Flugelhorns and Cornets have such dissimilar sounds?
From dallasmusic.org/gearhead/Flugelhorn%20Guide.html : "The small bore flugels play quite differently from the larger bored horns and one should really try one of each, if at all possible, to see which group feels the better to you. The large bore horns, though still sounding like flugels, play more like trumpets, which may or may not be a good thing. You already have a trumpet.". Cornets might have a smaller bore than trumpets, but flugelhorn maybe even smaller, which might make the difference you hear.

comment Why do Flugelhorns and Cornets have such dissimilar sounds?
@adogden: Placing the valve section closer to the mouthpiece should not affect the sound much in itself, but it allows for starting the conical part much closer to the mouthpiece.

Well, if it is far more conical, it will need a larger bell. As for taper, isn't it the same as conicity?

comment Key signature for writing in modes other than major and minor
"Singers with varying reading skills", I don't think that'd mean much to a good portion of a choir.

comment Why are notes named the way they are?
This is incredibly interesting. German note naming has B for Bb, and H for natural B, I suppose it has to do with "The first note that people tried adjusting was B, which formed a dissonant interval of a 'tritone' with F. " I would love a source for this!

comment Is the trumpet's theoretical range unlimited?
With a standard bore of .450", that is roughly 11.5 mm, and with sound speed of 340 m/s (is that the correct value to use here? Should it be affect by the air speed?), that limit is right below 30 kHz. The human ear is said to be able to hear frequencies up to 20 kHz.
