Beginners Digital Trumpet
My 8 year old daughter is learning how to play the trumpet which means I’m subjected to what can only be called ear abuse a few times a week (she’s meant to practice everyday though I do find that hard to encourage). Which is why the following instrument caught my eye, the digital trumpet.
This trumpet is a great learning tool for students, and makes blowing much easier (you hum). It also has a teaching mode that uses illuminated LEDs to show you which valves to press to play particular tunes (10 in total). It’s also good for fellow household members as it has a volume control (and hopefully a headphone jack).
It’s not cheap t $400 but think of your ear drums, sanity and your child’s musical aspirations
