Trumpets and Cornets are constructed from a narrow tube of brass which is coiled round on itself to save space. The sound comes out of the flared bell, and is made by blowing a "raspberry" with your lips into the cup-shaped mouthpiece. You can make a number of different notes by varying the tension of your lips and pressing different combinations of the three valves which divert the air through little extra lengths of tubing.

Trumpets are used in various styles of music, mainly orchestral and jazz bands although they have also been used in wind and brass bands and have been popular in different genres of music including Mowtown, Blues & Pop.

The Cornet is very similar and only differs in the shape of the bore which is conical and gradually expands in width towards the flared end. This produces a softer, sweeter sound than the trumpet which has a harder, brighter sound.

Various types of trumpet and cornets including small ones that play in different keys are available and there are a myriad of excellent sites on the internet who cater specifically to Trumpet & Cornet players.
