Ok interesting question arose, so please for the scientific purposes fill in the poll
I used to tell everyone I was in band for a reason when friends wanted me to do choir.
I guess they win, because I teach choir now! (In addition to band and all other music classes of course)
I've never sang / been able to or tried, but have been told that I need to learn my scales / key signatures on the piano as well as the trumpet and to sing the notes for the various intervals... e.g. so basically get the sound of the note and pitch differences in my head so to improve my ear. SO perfect fourth might sing a C and then sing an F.
so far it appears that roughly 2/3 of the participants don't need to throw their trumpets against the wall -- and some say they can sing, and other say that can't sing ---- and we would really need to have an objective opinion on whether they can or can not sing -----
There's more possibility for objectivity for the question of have you ever had the urge to throw your trumpet than the question about singing ability. I'm not sure many people can say objectively if they can sing or not. Trumpet players may have a slightly more objective view of themselves, well, some do.
Can I sing? mmmm........... Yes in the shower alone. I think this question is a loaded question.
One of the reasons that I play the trumpet is so I can make the trumpet sing, so I don't have too.
Although, I can sing. I and my listeners prefer the trumpet singing over my voice.
In my case, I can not only play the trumpet, but, I CAN sing. I was bass section leader for a leading barbershop chorus for many years, as well as singing in various ensembles in evangelical churches in Michigan.
I always say that there is a reason God shoved a trumpet into my face....even He doesnt want to hear me sing!
Everyone can sing. Nobody can't sing. However, a lot of the peoples .... they sing very very badly.
