Bagatelle in Eb - Finished

This is a bagatelle that I composed as an homage to my favorite composer, Ludwig van Beethoven. I did multiple things to make it sound like it is an homage to Beethoven. Those include motivic development to the max, lots of octaves, and sudden dynamic changes, as well as using the diminished seventh to impart tonal ambiguity.

Here is the link if you want to listen to it and give me feedback on it:

Resistance Training

in Brass

Hello Fellow Brass Musicians,

I have been playing trumpet for a while now. My range goes all the way to double C and a Double B flat(Meaning a good tone on B Flat). As my range goes up, I noticed that my resistance is not as good (I loose my chops faster, and can only practice my music for an hour before I have to stop) I have tried loosening up and using more air to hit high notes but it still doesn't work. If any of you could help, I would appreciate it so much!
Thanks!
