I just try to “feel it.” Sounds cliche, but your body has to be in tune with your instrument and you have to have spatial awareness, as far as the music underneath you, the beat/band/or track, and how it relates to what you are doing on your instrument.
The more you practice, the more and you feel the groove, the spatial things, the layers and phrases, even with your eyes closed.. Sort of “feel your way” through the music. (You do have to know the root of the key you are in, major or minor, in my opinion. So that could take up a thought or so every now and then when you are playing).
There’s not a particular thought, but a vibe or feel that you are experiencing in my opinion.
Inderbinen, Schilke, and lots others brands. I’m not sure “more prestigious” but you might look up custom/handmade horn makers. There is a horn maker called Schagerl as well.
F, F#, G, Ab, A, Bb, B, C, C#, D, D#, E.
Is it possible to be accepted into Berklee with no former sight reading knowledge? How does it work out for the audition?
As long as you can read music. But it’s best if you can sight read as well. Depends if they need the instrument you play enrolled and a variety of factors I’m sure. Good luck.
A Martin Comitte and then a bunch of others later on.
For most people yea unless you are a natural about it
A Martin Committe trumpet and then lots of other makes later on I’m sure. (The Bb trumpet primarily).
Just go through the scales. Get a chart of the scales and go through them. Eventually you will memorize them.
