Trumpet mouthpiece

I was at a mall the other day and saw a bunch of happy, smiling kids coming out of a music shop/school. There is something to be said about kids coming out from a music class vis-a-vis kids coming out from a tuition class. The former group has a lighthearted look on their faces, while kids from the latter group have stressed-out looks. I guess, music lightens a person and studies don't(?)

Talk about music, for a music illiterate, I never knew that there are different trumpet mouthpieces for different jobs until I stumbled on an article that says so.

Shopping for a trumpet mouthpiece is a personal choice, of course, but the article notes that most musicians are playing with the wrong mouthpiece for the style of music they are playing. Only the experts will know.
