Checkpoint 1

The topic I will be using for my ISP is the history, development, and use in music of the trumpet from its invention as a bugle to the modern-day valve trumpet and other variants. I chose this topic because playing trumpet for over five years has made a huge impact on my life and though I’m not at a master level, I enjoy playing it and would like to research its origins and how it has been used in the past. For my research, I will be using internet resources and sources provided by my mentor. My mentor will be my private lesson teacher, Kurt Kumme.
