This is the THIRD of a
series about musical instruments.
trumpet (a "lip-vibrated"
instrument) is the highest brass
instrument in register, above the horn,
trombone, euphonium and tuba. I
chose for three valveless brass
instruments: the speed and tightness
of the lips, and the speed of the air
that travels into the instrument come
into play. The faster the air, generally
the higher pitch that comes out.
I thought that the old fashioned hand
pumped CAR HORN of my grandfather
should be part of this watercolor too!
The song "All Together Now"
from the Beatles ends with this hand
