How To Play The Trumpet

There are three valves on a trumpet and the player presses and releases them to produce different notes and sounds.

When playing you must purse your lips and vibrate them while moving your tongue while you are blowing into the instrument.

 

If you hear gurgling in the trumpet, empty the spit from the main tuning slide at the end of the trumpet closest to the bell. This will ensure a better tone from the instrument.
