I am in Jr. high. I have been playing trumpet for 3 years. I am in concert band and our band needs more trombone players. I am in two minds. Whether to switch to trombone or stick to trumpet. If I choose trombone, I will get a spot in Symphony band next year. I don't know which instrument has higher rank. At the same time I am also thinking, that when I will be in High school, I will keep trumpet.
I am confused and cannot make decision.
Can somebody help me look thru?

Well personally I would chose the trumpet because well, I like the trumpet. But in your case I would stick to what ever You enjoy more. I am also in junior high and have been playing the trumpet for 5 years. I am in the concert band and our band does not have a lot of trombone players. When i first joined band I did want to play trombone but sadly I was to short to even extend the slide. But last year I was thinking of making the switch to the trombone because we didn't have any begining trombone players. But That year there was there were 7 trumpets and we were graduating 4. So that leaves me and two beginers. I knew instantly that my band director will not let me be a trombone player because he needed me in the trumpet section. As for highschool I'll most likely being tenor saxophone in the jazz band because the highschool that I will be atending does not have a trumpet section. The school told me that i could still play trumpet but I'll be the first and only trumpet player so I 'm kinda freaked out about that. So in short Just pick whichever one you like more. If the trombone is what you want, but I still say that i like the trumpet better

I'm in high school and play trumpet in the marching band. Sometimes you have to sacrifice for the better of the band...if it really needs another trombone a noble thing to do would be step foward and change. On the other hand: I'd rather get my teeth drilled than march with a trombone...but you didn't say anything about marching so this may not be an issue.
Talk it over with your teacher, too.
Much Love and Sincerity,
