Wonderopolis pt. 2
My topic is how do you play a trumpet. The trumpet has been around for thousands of years. It is one of the oldest instruments around. Archaeologists evenfound bronze and silver trumpets in the Egyptian tomb of Tutankhamen, better known as King Tut.Everyone thinks that can just play it in orchestra but it is also used as a signal call for the poeple in the military they called them signal tools. A trumpet is basically a curved hollow metal tub. A trumpet begins with a mouthpiece at the narrow end and ends with a flared bell at the opposite end.The bell projects the sound. It sounds like it is easy to play it but you have to blow the right amount of air into it. THat is the only way to get the correct sound. I play the trumpet and it is not easy as you might think.To play a trumpet you must purse your lips tightly together and let them vibrate as you blow. You also have to move your tongueat the same time. As you play the trumpet moisture from your breathe condenses inside the instrument. But when you are playing there is a key to let the moisture drip out.
Instrument: A musical tool used to play by someone.
