Trumpet Show:
Let's See What We Have Here

 

 

The trumpet is one of the most exciting instruments in the band.  Its bright tone and strong projection make it perfect for upbeat, high-energy music.

Trumpets are used in all styles of music including jazz, classical, and popular.  


Both boys and girls play the trumpet. 

It's not a difficult instrument to learn with some practice.

To produce sound on a trumpet, the player makes a buzzing sound by blowing through closed lips.  This sound is amplified by the mouthpiece, creating a sound wave that carries through the tubing of the trumpet and out its bell.

The player changes the pitch of the sound by pressing the three valves in various combinations, in effect changing the length of the tubing the air flows through.

 

 

 

Here's an example of trumpet music:



The trumpet soloist is Melissa Venema, age 16
