    Just because it doesn't particularly apply to the US, doesn't mean that the observation is invalid elsewhere, Mr K. In my old neck of the woods there was, or at least used to be, a marked difference in approach. And, admittedly, a certain amount of prejudice both ways.

    Re: Cornet Prelude To Learning Trumpet

    IMO not everyone can immediately pull off the switch well, either way between cornet and trumpet or between one of these and any other brass instrument. I do it now, but I'm not acclaiming I do it well ... just passable at the level of musicianship needed for my music. Even between cornet and trumpet there is a drastic change in embouchure requirements moreso than just the change in mouthpieces.

    Re: Cornet Prelude To Learning Trumpet

    Oboe, recorder, mouth harmonica, French horn, Alto horn, flugelhorn, Bb trumpet, cornet, flugelhorn, A/Bb piccolo, D/Eb trumpet, Eb cornet and since dabling counts, I now dabble with the latter six. This makes me a dabbler of all mezzo and soprano brass, but master of none. Except that my everyday audience (my wife, our three dogs and three horses, the local chipmonks and cayotes) all think that I am terrific on all these horns. In fact the cat, dogs and cayotes all sing along, albeit very out of tune. Or maybe they are in-tune and I am not...... LOL ........
    Oh, BTW, a few years ago I bought and started playing a set of keyed mouth harmonicas and I also just ordered a student flute.
    I am also thinking on borrowing my son's clarinet to dabble with it.
    So stay tuned (pun intended) ........
