French Horn

How hard would it be to switch from french horn to trumpet?

I have been playing french horn for a few years now (i have never really been that good at it). This year I started marching band and noticed I am way better at the marching horn than the concert horn. I was thinking, the marching horn is similar to the trumpet. How hard would it be to switch to the trumpet? One of my squad leaders in band when from trumpet to horn. There is not much of a difference right? Would it just be a giant mess if I switched sections? Or am I just an idiot that has no clue what she is talking about?

French horn is known as being one of the, if not the most difficult instrument to play. It wouldn't be that hard to go from horn to trumpet at all. When I was in high school, I played the french horn for everything, but also played the trumpet in the jazz band, and I sounded better than half the trumpet players. Since you know how to play mellophone, it wouldn't be that difficult to get the fingerings down for trumpet. The only thing that you might wrestle with is getting the different key that the trumpet is in. As instrumentalists we have an idea of how a note is how to sound. When we switch to an instrument in a different key, we have to memorize all new sounds for the notes. But I think if you really want to switch, it is definitely possible and probable that you will do it with ease.
