Trumpet Player

in Trumpet

Hey everyone!

So, I am a trumpet player (this is my 3rd year playing) who will be starting to play in the high school marching band next year! I would love to meet a few trumpet players who are around the same age and skill level as me. If thats you, lets talk!

Sight Reading/Rhythm

in Trumpet

I've been playing the trumpet for 6 years now and whats letting down is my rhythm which is also making sight-reading difficult. Any advice on this would be much appreciated, as I'm thinking of signing up for the Royal Academy of Music once I've finishedI've my A-Levels in the UK. 
Cheers, Thomas.

Imagine if you could save lyrics with midi (Karaoke files) and export as 2 options: "KAR file (MIDI File with lyrics)" and "KAR file with chords"

Do you realize the numbers of  school teachers, and church choir leaders would would find this useful for teaching, conducting parishioners, choruses etc.? And why not lyrics from several voices simultaneously? Why, people might even have FUN with these files (heaven forbid)!!

Do you realize how useful these files could be with karaoke software?! I am a programmer and I see the arguments as "beside-the-point" and not at all insurmountable.  In fact, there may be no reason why more than one part's lyrics couldn't be saved and scrolled in a karaoke app in parallel.

Read my request where I address the programmer's objections. With all the lyric-typing I do I am disappointed/insulted that I can't export the lyrics with the midi. I have searched high and low and the closest software I can find to a solution is Serenade (http://www.1manband.nl/serenade/index.htm ) which is far from as perfect for this as MS would be. Please help promote the idea at (see https://musescore.org/en/node/290163 ) !!

Please help me for the perfect Valentines Day Present (Song) :)

Hello fellow players,

i need your help in finding the right notes from the Song:

Left Boy - Bitte brich mein Herz nicht Baby

I would like to play the lead singing melody on the trumpet (cause its learn-able and one of my gf's favorit tracks).

since i have never done anything like thats  i am having a little troubles, could you please help me with you experience and well trained ears?

so far i know:

concerpitch Key = Bb Minor ( which would be C Minor for B trumpet right?)

So far i am guessing:
Ab - Bb -Ab - Bb - C1 -Ab - Ab - Bb
Ab - Bb - Bb -Ab- Bb- F (x2) 

or it it:
Eb - F - and so on? 

Thanks a lot i know its a simple track but please help me :DD
