The trumpet is a bold, high-pitched brass instrument. Personalities best suited for the trumpet are quick, hard-working individuals who do not fear failure.

Physical considerations: smaller lips are easier to maneuver a trumpet mouthpiece.

When renting or buying: If buying used, please have the instrument cleaned by a professional. Do not attempt to clean or remove valves on your own.

Extra equipment: Students should have a soft cloth for cleaning as well as valve oil in their case. Folding music stands are optional.
