Interested in Free Trumpet Tutorials?

2018-01-03 19:05:15 by sorohanro


I started, as part of my job, to write some trumpet tutorials. Those are targeted very wide to kids from 6 to 20 years old.
Are you interested? Should I start a thread updated weekly with new lessons? free music sheet, free backing tracks to practice, eventually videos and me being available to answer questions?
Can start from level 0 and we go together to level... whatever we manage. I can promise I'll make it fun to learn even if all you can play it's just one note.

If there's anyone interested, leave a comment here and I'll start it. All you need is a trumpet. You can find a cheap pocket trumpet under 90$.

New EP

2017-05-10 20:36:40 by sorohanro

Hi there!

I'm happy to announce a new EP. this time a bit more on the rock side of the music. Some of the tracks are actually composed in 2009, in their early incarnations are here on NG. Now they got some better guitar parts, some punchier brass (after I got my trombone), really cool drums, a nice mix and mastering.

Rubber Love

2017-02-19 19:36:58 by sorohanro

I fell in love with... rubber ducks. I want to buy those but my wife told me she'll kick me in the balls if I do it.

As much as I seem a masochist sometimes, I won't risk, but here's some links for future reference to the awesome rubber ducks.

First one is a Batman duck, the one that started my passion:


The next one is going to space. As a kid I wanted to be an astronaut.


Robots. Robots are cool, in a Jetsons kind of way.


And the last one is a classsic. You should always respect classics.



Oh well... one day... one day...
