The question of the day is...
How many of you started on cornet. I did, I love playing it, solos, orchestra. (gee now you know why the screen name) if I could I would rather have a band playing them.
Question for educators out there
Do you prefer to start kids on trumpet cornet and why.
I prefer cornet, easier for the kids to get a decent sound out of and find that some bad habits cannont get started. ie. kids resting bell on leg, embouchure problems that the out of balance the trumpet can cause, easier for really small kids to handle (I was one of them)
