A trumpet is a brass instrument used mainly in Classical music and jazz music.

The most common type of trumpet is a Bb trumpet, meaning that if the player plays a C, it will sound like a Bb in concert pitch. The trumpet is played by blowing into the mouthpiece and making a "buzzing" sound. There are three keys called valves that the player can press to change the pitch.
