Hello! My name is Miguel Carrondo. I'm 16 years old. I play trumpet and I want to follow music, I want to make this my life!
At the moment, I don't play with a trumpet that is really mine, I study at the Escola Profissional da Serra da Estrela, in Seia, I'm in the 11th year on school, in which I use the trumpet that the band I attend provides me. My teacher, at the School (Profissonal da Serra da Estrela - EPSE), has been proposing for some time to raise money to be able to buy a trumpet on condition and to my level.
In financial terms, it's not easy in the family I have, we are 7 in total (father, mother, 4 sons and 1 daughter), in which I am the oldest of the brothers. My father has health problems, has been on sick leave for a long time, he fears that he will not be able to work anymore due to his problems and that the money will not be enough to pay bills and support the family he has at home. My mother is unemployed.
I really want to follow music, study and play trumpet in my life. I would appreciate and be very grateful if you could help me realize my dream of having a trumpet of mine and thus be able to study to build a good future and career.
THANK YOU to everyone who contributes!
