Yes, and perhaps the fact that you wear your lips out much quicker, drive
neighbours and other nearby animals into states of helpless despair. The
Artie Shaw Jazz Technic Book 1 has quite a lot of high note studies - they
are rather Klose-like in the demands they make on tricky fingering
combinations, and you don't necessarily have to syncopate them.

Hi all,

It seems to me the reason mastery of altissimo comes slowly for most is the
lack of altissimo studies. What the literature has is scales/arpeggios that
ascend briefly to the range or an etude that touches it briefly. As far as I
know there are no altissimo studies per se.

What I'd like to see are studies:
1. similar to the Klose Mechanisms
2. similar to the Kroepesch studies,
3. etudes whose tessitura are upper clarion and altissimo.

If anyone knows of such I'd appreciate hearing about them. As things stand
now, I writing my own.

Best wishes,
--Vann Joe
