How To Play The Trumpet

Learning how to play any music instrument whether they are drums or a trumpet is not easy. But this does not mean it cannot be done. If you have a passion for music and are interested in playing the trumpet, trumpet lessons will go a long way in helping you achieve that. Here are some tips that will help you achieve your goal of playing this instrument.

1. Buy or Rent a Trumpet

Visit your local music store and ask for a student trumpet. This trumpet should be in the key of B flat. Either buy or rent the trumpet after you ensure that it is in good condition.

2. Practice without the trumpet

Practice how to play by saying the letter “M.” When saying the letter, stop at the “mmm” part and maintain your lips in that position. In a buzzing sound, blow through this position. This is the basic lip position for playing.

3. Practice with a trumpet

Now, try the position using a trumpet. You should now try playing by pressing on those three valves while blowing the trumpet.
With these simple steps, you would have played your first two notes on a trumpet.
