    For a Bb trumpet new player, indeed I start them in the concert "key" of Bb, and for a C trumpet new player in the concert "key" of C. For all others, it requires a combination.:thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    but for older and comeback players -- there are an assortment of keys that they can be started with (F, G, A, E, etc.)ROFL

    Possible but not always probable. It never bothered me, I just read the key sig and play, likewise no problem from concert key to Bb instrument.:shock::-o:cool:
