    Here's one of my favourite clips of Tine Thing Helseth playing at the Nobel Peace Prize concert! Yeah, not a lot of respect for those trumpet-playing women.

    Family can be funny can't they. If you love playing trumpet, then play! Nothing worse than sitting around in 30 or 40 years wishing you'd stuck with it.

    The world is full of successful people who were told they should go and do something else. The world is also full of unsuccessful people who listened to that advice. Wow, I think I just coined a phrase!

    Enjoy playing, put in the work, be realistic, and see where it takes you.

    Good luck!

    While it is a myth that it will make your lips big, as you see in the videos it WILL turn you into a skinny blonde European. Seriously.

    Those are really stupid myths. Some of the best trumpeters in the world are women.

    PS: Ladies with trumpets are hot- I hope you're old enough for that not to be inappropriate!
