My daughter is doing her grade 8 on a flugel horn but is coming under intense pressure by her teacher to change to a trumpet. She has started working on Haydn Trumpet Concerto movement 3 and although she can physically get the high notes she does not do it with ease yet. Her teacher (A trumpet player) says it would be so much easier on trumpet and nobody does grade 8 on a flugel. My daughter really wants to be as good on flugel as she can be and does not want to change to trumpet mainly because if you play trumpet in the exam you have to do additional tests on transposing. So what should it be Trumpet or Flugel. Extra practice getting the high notes or swotting up on transposing?
