Trumpet, an archetypal brass instrument, can strike loud and high tones like an assault weapon can also draw tears from a melodic ballad.
It is compact and easy to carry, and can be muted for comfortable practice at home. Look, it’s only got 3 valves! No headache trying to remember complex fingerings.
However, trumpet can be one of the mostdifficult instruments to make the initial sound. While all brass instrumentsrequire your body part (lips) to produce the sound, trumpet, having thesmallest mouthpiece, is the most challenging at first.
Therefore it is critical that you obtain professional guidance at the outset, in order to avoid developing bad habits which could take years to correct later. Once you learn the correct use of facial muscles and breathing technique, the 3 valve simplicity and the joy of playing those high notes will keep you captivated.
