Nit buying the book i a big mistake...Maggio (written is bass clef for bone) is used by many of the players you probably admire! 

Thanks!  That is the answer I was hoping for. 

Timothy42B: Forgive me.  Perhaps I did not phrase my original question clearly.

Vegasbound: I don't mean to pound on this, but I need to know if the book I am looking at on Amazon is the one you have referred to as being written in base clef.  Here is a link to it:

http://www.amazon.com/Original-Louis-Maggio-System-Brass/dp/B000729MB4

Notice that it says, "Original Louis Maggio System for Brass".  It doesn't say what brass: treble-layers (trumpets) or base-players (trombones).  So how do I know that I won't have to transpose from either treble or tenor clef down to base clef.  I'm confused.  I don't want to buy this book if it does not contain all of it's studies written in base clef.  If it IS written in base clef, then what do our trumpet-playing friends do with it?  Can you help?

Thanks,
Charles

my high range has improved the most since I started doing fundamentals with a dedicated mental focus on producing a great tone efficiently. Mostly between  and  ...  Don't know works for me.

I thought this was my comfortable range for a while.  But then I started seeing pieces with faster and more challenging rhythms that use the notes between  and    .  I may be able to play all these notes comfortably when they are out of context.  But put if you put them in the context of some weird interval changes and dotted-8th-16th note rhythms, then they become hard again.

I've been thinking a little less about getting to  lately, and more about playing up to    in more contexts.
