I've been playing trumpet for four (nearing five) years, and this app would have been helpful when I was first learning, but even then, not by much. The songs are difficult to play to, and for a beginner's app, an improvement would be to show the songs as they would look on sheet music. The range is much less than that of a trumpet, and I found the sharp and flat functions difficult to figure out (I didn't figure them out). I only gave this app a quick once-over, but I dislike it and would not recommend it to those wanting to learn the instrument. While the fingerings are useful, simply printing out a chart would be much easier (and avoid you getting yelled at for having your phone out in class).
Good for Checking Fingerings
Even though I have been playing the trumpet for almost eight years, I have a difficult time playing a song on here because the notes are so close to each other. If they could space the lines out so it fills the whole page I would give this five stars. But in this format it is good for checking Fingerings for notes. Other than that it sounds very much like a trumpet and is a good app for beginners. 🎺
Great for someone just starting Trumpet!
The app downloaded fine and looks good. I had trouble with sound and response was fast and helpful. It was sound fx was muted by side switch and had some issue getting to unmute. After email response in minutes and good follow up. Thanks for the app and help getting it set up.
