Hi everyone

I have this break - which isn't a break - I mean I top at High E-F no matter what I do I can't get higher pitches. Though the buzzing is ' effortless ' and vibrant and full sounding.

Any tips to ovrcome this ?

Thanks

You may check out www.bbtrumpet.com

It's the website of Clint 'Pops' McLaughlin, a well-known teacher here on TH.

This article is a good start:

As per JVL: which "high"?

Why do you need to buzz higher? For a gig?

I'm no expert on or even practitioner of buzzing, but if I had a question about buzzing I'd check what James Thompson has to say. He's a terrific trumpeter (I used to hear him when he played with the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra) and a huge proponent of mouthpiece buzzing. Looking at his website, the FAQ mentions breaks encountered when buzzing the mouthpiece. Maybe his Buzzing Book could get you squared away.

FWIW

My experience with this issue is that, yes, there is a break around the E/F. For me the next note is a full fifth higher at the dbl C. I can then go up from there several notes. Coming down from the dbl C I can pretty much fill in the B,A,G,F#. But going up just wants to jump up the fifth from F.

The notes are there.

Definitely a "Buzzing Book" problem. End state is to use the same embouchure no matter the register and in this case, in order to go high, go low. Get a copy of the "Buzzing Book" and follow the instructions. 1-4 and Exercise 9 are the foundation.
