I've done some searching of the forums and I've come across great discussions on approaches to transposing and the different key trumpets that have been developed through the years (Robin, your knowledge in this area is amazing!). But none answered the (I think fundamental) question I have.
Why are trumpet students taught to read a C on the page when the tone coming out of the trumpet is Bb?
I learned trombone in high school to play in the jazz band and they are written in concert pitch, why isn't the same done with trumpets?
Thanks in advance,
