The trumpet has been with us for hundreds of years. How has time changed the horn? How do you get a tone from that mouthpiece? Does the field of trumpetry require a certain level of masochism? Gene V. Baker gets into the fundamental and higher harmonics, and shows how just three fingers can hit all of those pitches. We also get into the cornet, different mutes, and a bit on the slide trombone as well.
