When I was in high school, I tried to join the school band. I found it interesting to play musical instruments and become a part of the school's special events. Whenever there are parades and special occasions, my school's band joins and performs. Then band playing is awesome to hear and watch.
But I didn't get the chance to audition to join the school band because I didn't have an instrument. I have been wanting to play the trumpet, though. I couldn't find someone who owned one that I could rent. Trumpets are great musical instrument. It's sound is fun and lively.
My advice is, if you are interested in playing a musical instrument, try to learn playing pocket trumpet available at Musicians Friend . It's compact size is very convenient to carry around. Learning to play a trumpet is enjoyable especially if you will play classical music.
