In order to tongue so fast, Trumpet players will often use what's called "double tonguing". This technique is usually pretty difficult to master at first, so the best way to practice it and to gradually improve is to say "tiki tiki tiki tiki" over and over again, without the trumpet or mouthpiece. After awhile, try adding in the mouthpiece, but not buzzing. Then add the trumpet without buzzing. Then try buzzing and tonguing at the same time. It takes time to learn, but once you master it, it's a very good skill to have. Good luck! Keep up the trumpet playing!

That is why the trumpet is a member of the orchestra section called the high brass and the trombone is a member of the section called the low brass. * Trumpets usually get the melody a lot more often than trombones. * Trombones can glisando while trumpets (and any other instrument) can't.

If you mean fingering chart, then yes. There are several charts on line that show the traditional fingering for a trumpet. I've listed a few below. Most start with the lowest note being F# below the staff. However, some list notes that are called "pedal tones," which are notes not normally written in music literature, but are sometimes used during practice sessions. Most of the charts end at high C, but depending on the ability of the player, notes can be played much higher than that.
