I'm Matt :3
So.. you have about 6 years of experience or something? I gotta say, that's pretty much how long I've been playing it
It doesn't make sense to prioritise music unless you're planning on to becoming a professional player. I mean you should practice once in a while but never make a whole life out of it
I lack stamina in my upper region (high A - high D) too. A problem that I didn't really have to deal with in the past. I really blame it on orthodontics
Yes French horn is definitely harder than the Trumpet, although I started French horn before trumpet. It's mostly pitching that throws people off, but I have this horrible difficulty with low notes.
That is true! I don't know about the trumpet but I feel that in French Horn, where I usually like to stay in high F - high D region, but being a 2nd Horn player often requires low A or even worse, low E or something like that.
Middle E is usually a tricky note, because it's between middle C and high G. It's sometimes hard to find the right pitch. Same goes for high F actually. If you aim a little too high, you get a G sharp out of tune, and if you aim a little too low, you get a middle D.
What's the mouthpiece you're using?
I used to use 1.5C, but now that my lips die very quickly on that one, now I use the standard 7C which everyone else uses (the lead trumpeter in my jazz band uses a thinner one, apparently)
