[Solved] Menuett/rhythm drills
Attached recording (& sheet music) to the first part of Menuett. I practiced this piece in parallel with the rhythm drills. There seems to be some improvement. If you can review that would be great!
WOW! What a huge improvement! Your rhythm practice really is paying off. I'm super. happy to see these results!
Here are couple trumpet notes:
1) The measure with the dotted half D should be 3 beats. I heard you play for 3 beats, and then you took one extra beat to breathe. You have to try to steal a little time from the note to take a quick breathe. I talk about this in chapter 8 of the breathing lesson in Beginner Primer. https://www.trumpetheadquarters.com/trumpet-lessons-online/trumpet-breathing/
2) Support the upper notes as they tend to come out flat. This is likely due to trying to blow harder to reach them/ Remember to use your tongue placement to aid in the compression of air so that you don't physically work harder. More air is louder, not higher.
@trumpetheadquarters thank you Estela for feedback and the Breathing tips 🙏 I watched the Lesson, downloaded the exercises & started practicing them.
Your guidance, instruction have been very helpful.
