Instrument help! Watch
So I've been playing the trumpet for 7 years and I know that after my A-levels I want to give it up and try a new instrument. I've thought of violin but when I asked- I was always told to stick to brass family... Which isn't the point.
Can anyone help?
Strings: Violin (challenge), viola (frequently confused with violin but has lower sound), cello (warm, deep tone), double bass (slightly jazzy), harp (angelic etc)
Woodwind: Piccolo (quite screechy sister of the flute), flute (graceful delicate sound), clarinet (slightly jazzy too), oboe (sounds "as if the duck were a songbird" ), cor anglais // english horn (similar to oboe), saxophone (yet another jazzy instrument).
Brass: trumpet (but you want to quit), trombone (fun sliding thing), tuba (old man farting lol ), french horn (sounds like HRH The Queen is about to enter the damn building).
Percussion: Instruments for anger issues imo especially with the timpani, you can pretend you're hitting the conductor in the face, but I doubt that you will go far and make a career in playing the triangle.
So, this is my pov on instruments, now choose for yourself.
