The challenge

Trumpet supportA young lady with effective use of her left hand only had a very keen desire to learn to play the trumpet.

A flexible supporting device, designed to hang around the lady’s neck and take the weight of the instrument, was constructed.

The device allows her to ignore the action of holding the trumpet in place and concentrate entirely on manipulating the valves with the fingers of her good left hand.

The lady is now taking music lessons and is approaching the experience with considerably improved confidence and enthusiasm.
