Today I have made a key decision as far as my music career goes. I have decided to switch from trumpet to French Horn. I made this decision because I like the warm mellow tone it has better than the trumpet. Don’t get me wrong, I still like the sound of the trumpet because it’s just a cool sound and I still plan to play it once in awhile. I just want to give the French Horn a try. Another reason is in many cases French Horns are the most important part in most symphonies. Most people don’t know that I enjoy classical and symphony music but I do. I have been thinking about switching for some time now, but when I found out a number of the songs in Star Wars, Harry Potter and Home Alone were played by French Horns and not trumpets that pretty much ended the argument between which I should play. My mom still has her jaw on the floor because this is an expensive instrument. I’m hoping my school has one I can borrow to use for the remainder of the year. If the school doesn’t have one I’m not sure my mom will be running to the store to pick out a French horn.
Here is an awesome French horn video. Enjoy!
