    Piano and trumpet

    I know that learning piano as a kid can help you with instruments later in life but since I started on the trumpet is it still a benefit to learn as a teenager. fFor some of you that have what are are some of the benefits for learning and what are some standard repetior maybe something to the equivelent to an arban that can help me learn more that this little tiny song system that most of the piano books teach you by.

    Re: Piano and trumpet

    Learning any kind of chordal instrument will help, be that guitar, piano, or something else. My piano skills are woefully inadequate (though I'm a reasonably good guitarist), but even being able to just play maj, minor, aug, dim, dominant chords can really help. It can help with your improv (so I've heard - I'm rubbish at improv!) as you can play a sustained chord in your left hand and hear how the notes of different scales sound over it by playing them with your right hand.

    That was a bit rambling, but I hope it helps a bit.

    It's definitely beneficial. Maybe not essential. If you've got the time/resources, definitely pick some up. Either that or guitar. It'll help your ear and your understanding of harmony.
