Default The Trumpet

Does no one like what can be one of the most mellow and calming instruments, yet can also be one that gets the heart pumping and get the listener ready for action. The versitility of the trumpet is underated. The different genres it can play is amazing as well as the amount of moods that it can convey. The sound of the trumpet is one that when controlled can wow anyone. It can be pleasing to the ear and it can be harsh it all depends on how you want to play it, your mentality really flows through the trumpet. No matter what the tone of the piece, all one has to do is get into that mindset, know the song, relax and immerse themselves into the music that they are playing.

I'm a string player but I love the trumpet!

But if they are blowing in the ears of us strings players on stage and in concerts for major works its not so much fun.

I love the trumpet!

I'm sorry for my fellow trumpeteers and their obnoxiousness. Hopefully they outgrow that and become great musicians if they are not already great musicains.

Actually, I used to hate trumpet...it wasn't till I started talking to a guy that plays it that I actually took a liking to it. Funny you should bring this topic up now, cuz I'm about to start learning trumpet. *coughs* As of right now, I sound horrible on it.

Aw don't worry just keep working on your embouchure which is completely different form what you play, and besides the trumpet is a gateway brass to all of the other brass instruments. Good luck and have fun.

lol. See, flute players forget that kind of stuff...we're rather embarrassed of those first playing days when we sounded airy, could only hold out a note for 4 beats, and didn't yet know vabrato. (well, I knew it, but that's because I sung for my entire life until Band)
