I'm not sure it's the good forum... Sorry if not ! I have two sons and a daughter (with three women, but that's an other story). No one wanted to learn the trumpet ! My first son plays clarinet (what a pity !) and sings : the second is a drummer (shame on him) and the girl plays the piano (better than me, being only 11 years old, I'm jealous). My question is : among your children, TMers my friends, how many have choosen trumpet, and how many have politely prefered another instrument ?
