For some reason, when choosing an instrument, the trumpet is rarely among the first choices.
In fact, many people don’t even consider it as much as other wind instrument such as, say, the saxophone.
And that’s a real shame since the trumpet is a seriously cool instrument.
Think about it, the trumpet brings many benefits, such as:
- Learning to control your breathing
- Developing your hearing abilities
- Learning how to become a better musician overall
It’s true, the trumpet’s sound makes it — at least most of the time — a lead instrument in many bands and as such it forces you to play flawlessly.
Funnily, it’s also the reason that gave birth to the urban legend that “trumpet players have an oversized ego”.
But whatever your reason for playing the trumpet is, you’ve come to the right place as I have in today’s article everything you need to know in order to get started.
Sounds good? Then let’s start.
