The purpose of Trumpet Heroes is to help you learn to play the trumpet, or perhaps just to learn more about the Trumpet. Whether you’re learning a band instrument for the first time or returning to an old hobby, the content on this site is here to help you.

It’s a very loosely organized collection of things that people – mainly students – have asked me to explain, most of which have some bearing on Trumpets or Trumpet playing. I might digress from time to time or slide into a rant … you have the power to click past that stuff so no apologies here. My daughter attempts to keep me on track and to make sure that I do whatever the bots want me to do. Blame anything you don’t like on the bots.
