You're watching VisiHow. This is a video tutorial series on playing the trumpet. In the previous tutorial, we learned how to play arpeggios. In this tutorial, we will show you how to play the C chromatic scale on the trumpet.
- 1For example, on the C major scale, you will play C, D, E, F, G, A, B, and C. There are also half steps. In order to make a scale, you use a combination of whole and half steps. To make a chromatic scale, all of the half steps in the scale will be played.Essentially, a chromatic scale is a scale with all of the half steps between the first and last scale degrees.
- 2The first time, let's play legato, which means that only the primary note will be tongued. The second time, let's play the scale single-tonguing each note. When single-tonguing notes, remember to place your tongue on the center point between the back of your teeth and the roof of your mouth.For this exercise, let's start with middle C, go up one octave to the next C, and then come back down.
- 6This will help to improve your playing technique. The correct placement of your fingers, combined with a proper breathing, posture and embouchure, will help you produce good sound.Remember the position of your hands in order to play each note.
