The C on the Piano

The piano is a good default instrument to explain a concert key because almost everyone has access to one. To find C on a full piano, you need to look for a set of 2 black notes together, C will be the note to the left of the left black note. The piano has multiple Cs, the one in the middle is middle C.

The "Concert Scale" and the 'Pitch of Psi

"Concert Scale" is related to "Concert Pitch". It's all about the act of transpositioning. The piano is the standard for pitch. The guitar and bass are the same pitch as the piano.

Flattening a note with brass instruments

Flat keys are friendlier if the winds are mostly adding sharps. Concert C has trumpets in D and alto saxes in A. While E major might seem like a good key for strings or piano, your trumpets end up in F# and C#.

It's not as easy as it should be for a good player to play in any key. Unless you're at the bottom of the partial, you can always flatten a note with brass instruments. Even just C, G, and G# is crossing over a break, going from the highest note of one partial into the bottom of the next.

Tuning the trumpet

It's important to warm up before tuning. Getting your air flowing, blood moving in your lips, and brain working are all necessary to focus on the item at hand. Your instrument may be cold which can affect pitch.

When the snow started to fly, marching band rehearsals were very cold. It was a problem when the brass instruments were shoved under the bus. There are only two possible decisions.

There are three. You can either pull out your slide or push it in. You were wrong.

You feel okay about yourself, but your trumpet is not in tip top shape, and it will affect your performance or rehearsal. You will improve in your pitch matching and intonation every time. If you work to internalize pitch, you won't need to make huge tuning adjustments.

The go big or go home mentality will help you out of any shyness. Soon you will be able to hear small changes and make quick adjustments. There are a couple of concepts that you need to understand when it comes to the tuning of your car.
