Trumpet Wars 2018
Trumpet Wars is an annual competition hosted by Trumpets4Kids. Ensembles will compete, meet, and learn from international musicians. This year the event will be Saturday, March 3, 2018.
Through funding and donations, Trumpets4Kids distributes a trumpet to elementary, middle, and high school students at no cost to the students.
A long-time award winning jazz musician, Freddie Jones was preforming at a show in Grapevine, TX in 2007 when two young girls came to hear him play. They were interested in music, yet their mother was financially unable to buy a trumpet for them and he decided to give them one. Trumpets4Kids was born.
Get an Instrument
Nominate or apply for an instrument. Music fosters the development of attention and listening skills; it assists in emotional development; and music involvement is known to enhance self-esteem and confidence.
Once students receive an instrument they are required to maintain a strict practice schedule, and perform for their community.
