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. Articles can be found here on The History, Technique, and Performance. News from The World of the Trumpet. Interesting trivia about this instrument and links to many of the world’s best exponents. 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.
