pTrumpet wins education award

the revolutionary pTrumpet has won a prestigious music education award.

ptumpet
 

The pTrumpet — the world's first all-plastic trumpet — has received the accolade of 'Best Music Education Product' at the 2016 Music Teacher Awards for Excellence.

Oscars

Dubbed 'The Oscars of the Music Education World', they celebrate excellence in music and performing arts education, with the pTrumpet proving its popularity as an innovative yet accessible instrument by claiming the top prize — its second in as many months following a coveted NAMM award in the 'Gotta Stock It' category in January.

Eye catching colour

pTrumpet's original all-plastic valve system allows it to be played straight out of the box with no oil, delivering an instrument that is lightweight and versatile as well as being eye-catching in colour. It has proved a worldwide hit with professional musicians, beginners, teachers and students alike (above with Alison Balsom).

We hope this will encourage even more beginners and seasoned brass players to pick up a pTrumpet and see what the fuss is about — it won't disappointChris Fower

Delighted

Chris Fower, WMG Director of Education stated: "We are delighted that our pTrumpet has been recognised by the Music Education industry. We hope this will encourage even more beginners and seasoned brass players to pick up a pTrumpet and see what the fuss is about — it won't disappoint."

Warwick Music Group, the Coventry-based company that began life as a music publishing business in 1994, is also behind the world's best-selling trombone, pBone, that won the NAMM award for 'Best in Show' in 2012, judged by a panel of leading retailers.

To date, Warwick Music Group is the only company to ever win a NAMM award for every instrument it has created.
