Actually, I think the highest note there sounded a little low for a high C, more like a G, first space above the staff (treble clef). I`m surprised you did that well if you only practice 3 hours per week. I help teach a beginnnig brass class (5th & 6th grade), and we recommend that they practice no less than 30-45 minutes each day (7 days a week). Next year when they move up to intermediate band we`ll send practice sheets home with them and expect to see at least an hour each day verified by their parents. If you practice no more than 3 hours a week, you may have trouble keeping up with the front runners.

I don`t think it was too bad. You could use a great deal of practice. Work on shaping the line, you have no dynamics. Also, it sounded as if you were pinching on the last note. You said you don`t practice much, well if you practice a little bit each day it would greatly improve the way you sound.

First of all your tone sucked. I agree that you have no dynamics. Why would you post this on here? To embarrass yourself? This is the worst version of It Don`t Mean A Thing that I have ever heard. You suck.
