What do history museums, vintage trumpets, and your ancestors have in common? Yes! They are all things that annoy Barney Stinson, for new is not always better! That being said, I cannot vouch for the quality/ethics of all history museums. I mean, how many memes have been made about the British Museum having such an […]
Do you struggle to get a good sound out of your trumpet? I know what it’s like to feel like you’re using all of the top trumpet embouchure techniques you can but still have problems playing music. As wind players, we have to use our bodies quite a lot, from the lips to the lungs.
I didn’t know about a double bell euphonium until I took a music history class. I thought the class would be really fun and a good break from my music theory teacher, who had just emigrated from Japan and would regularly, accidentally, write solfege in kanji. To be clear, it didn’t make it any easier
Have you ever thought to yourself, “is the trumpet hard to learn?” I’ve thought about that question for the trumpet and just about any instrument that exists. But like other instruments, plenty of people play the trumpet, so can it be that hard? In some cases, learning the trumpet is a lot of work, but
I get bored really easily. So, I am always looking for a new instrument to try that is at least somewhat similar to instruments I’ve already played. I do the same thing with every other part of my life, looking for lectures and classes that are similar to ones I’ve already taken, like yoga, meditation,
I have come to greatly appreciate the euphonium. One of the only people I know in adulthood who plays the euphonium happens to be a close friend whom I greatly respect, so naturally, I gravitate toward the instrument because I associate it with being a productive, helpful, kind human being. I also really like Yamaha.
When I first visited the Smithsonian, I was really bored with the Museum of Natural History. I didn’t know that the Smithsonian had much more than dinosaurs. So imagine how happy I was when I came across Louis Armstrong’s Selmer trumpet and an 18th-century Stradivari violin! I didn’t care much for dinosaurs, but I loved
I had never heard of Blessing trumpet models until a student wandered in with one a few years back. I was intrigued because it sounded good and was a durable instrument, but I hadn’t really seen them in schools or in lessons. I asked around (old directors and such), and I wasn’t the only one.
If you are exploring the brass family and are unsure where to start, but you know you want something big, it’s time to look at the euphonium vs. tuba compared. The tuba is a large brass instrument that can be played in a marching band, standing, or sitting. However, because I’m so small, the tuba
If you are looking for a new trumpet, Jupiter has many great trumpet models for intermediate and professional players. You won’t find cheap beginner models with equally cheap accessories as you get with Cecilio or Mendini. Instead, you will get higher-quality models with a reliable tone, excellent craftsmanship, and durability. Once you invest in a
