Okay. Don't listen to the people who said it will help your trumpet playing. It won't. I am an awesome trumpet player too! I don't want to make you upset but the truth is, it made me not even be able to play a NOTE!! It hurt like heck trying to put the mouth piece against my mouth. The worst part is, I had a band test the 2nd day I had braces (which is the most painful day) and had to play when it was my turn, and I almost started crying, because I was 1st chair trumpet, and teacher's pet and I couldn't even make a noise come out. So there you go. That's truth about what braces will do. But don't worry! A month later I could play good. Then 2 or 3 months later I was back to normal playing GREAT! Don't worry, you'll get back to your normal awesome trumpet playing, because I even got into HONOR BAND!!! :-D
Good Luck! I know you'll be fine, e-mail me if you have any questions!

I play trumpet and I LOVE it! :-D
