I have been fascinated by anything to do with Trumpets for as long as I can remember. I have been in love with the sound and look of the trumpet all my life.

Opportunities for discussion are also to be found within this forum. I hope you find the information on here useful and entertaining. Why not visit my static trumpet page also – click on ‘The Trumpet’ at the top of the page.
