    At my new website Female Trumpet Artist is dedicated to all female trumpet players everywhere ... I am attempting to build a platform where female trumpet players can find each other and a place where young female players can go for inspiration. Listed there are just the trumpet players whom I have been able to find whom have their own websites. There are many others out there with Facebook pages etc. and many whom I am sure that I have never heard of. Some of those in the forefront are Alison Balsom, Ingrid Jensen, Tine Thing Helseth, Maite Hontele, Shinji Mori, Hikari Ichihara, Liesl Whitaker, etc. I am hoping to be contacted so that I can add others links as time goes by and possibly do interviews/profiles on those who are willing to take the time. Please "like" on Facebook so that I can spread the word.

    the break down of my community band is like this --- FLUTES (3 men, 4 women), Clarinets (5 men, 5 Women), Bass clarinets (1 Man, 2 Women), Alto sax (2 men, 4 women), French Horn (4 women), Trumpets (7 men, 5 women), Trombones (4 men, 1 woman),Baritone (1 man, 1 woman), percussion (2 men, 5 women). and the point is -- biased against women must be different in places around America ---- as it appears my community band is pretty much equal in women and men participating (although this is a community band with -- no auditions, if you can play an instrument - then FREELY join us!!!

    See, here, for example is a case where a lot of editing would be necessary. It doesn't look promising for you KT ol' boy, doesn't look promising.

    What I want to know KT: Is it a man or woman that plays (pounds on) the bass drum in your community band?
