The trumpet is the smallest member of the brass family. The sound on trumpet is produced by buzzing into a small mouthpiece. 

Physical Characteristics

While orthodontia is somewhat troublesome at first to a trumpet player, it is not impossible to make good sounds with braces. A slight overbite is okay, but an underbite can severely hinder progress on cornet / trumpet.  Cornet / trumpet players come in all shapes and sizes.

Other Considerations

Trumpet parts usually have the melody (recognizable) part, therefore students who
choose and are selected for trumpet should exhibit a confident demeanor, strong personality, and demonstrate a high level of self-motivation.
