Hi! My name is Miguel Carrondo. I'm 16 years old. I play the 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 professional school of Serra da Estrela in Seia, I'm in the 11th year, 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 save money to be able to buy a trumpet in conditions and for my level.
In financial terms it is not easy in my family, we are 7 in total (father, mother, 4 children and 1 daughter), in which I am the eldest of the brothers. My father has health problems, he has been on sick leave for a long time, he fears 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 the trumpet in my life. I would be very grateful and would appreciate it immensely, if they could help me to realize my dream of having a trumpet of mine and thus be able to study to build a good future and career. A VERY THANK YOU to everyone who contributed!
