#beginquote# To play the Eb scale you must play these notes and positions. 3rd space Eb- 3rd pos. 4th line F- 1st pos. 4th space G- 4th pos. 5th line Ab- 3rd pos. Bb above the staff-1st pos. C 1st ledger above-3rd pos. D 1st ledger and space above- 1st/4th pos. Eb 2nd ledger line above- 3rd pos. I suspect your problem is getting the high notes. This is usually the problem with younger players. As you go higher try to make the air go FASTER into the horn. Raising the back of the tongue (but keep the front low) like saying the word TEE will help. Also trying to aim the air toward the top of the mouthpiece will help. Good luck and most definitely talk to your band director. #endquote#
