The 11-year-old trumpeter, originally from Venezuela, is a very, very special talent.
Here's a young player to inspire you, make your jaw drop, and fill you with emotion through sheer musicality. And the sound she creates. Oh my!
Niccole Meza Ramos is known as 'Cole Trumpet' to her friends and fans. She’s 11 years old and has only been playing the trumpet for three years. She does not read music and learns and plays entirely by ear. What a talent she is.
And there’s an amazing story behind the beautiful tone. Niccole is from a musical family who were forced to leave Venezuela dues to political unrest. After seeing a clip of Niccole's playing on Facebook, Dale C Crow from Crow Custom Brass travelled to the Dominican Republic to track her down. Crow Custom Brass have since has signed Niccole in a two-year sponsorship deal, matching her with the best instruments and helping her bring her talent to audiences in America.
She now plays her own custom trumpet, the 'MC6 Cole Trumpet'.
This is the type of reactions Cole gets when she starts playing! People can't believe that this little girl can make...Posted by Crow Custom Brass on Tuesday, 3 September 2019
Crow Custom Brass are in the process of organising a tour of the US for Niccole and her family – follow them on Facebook for updates! We wish her, her family and all her supporters all the very best in sharing her amazing talent.
OK, this is my last Cole Trumpet Video. I am sorry but she stole my heart! And my Gold 5C mouthpiece but this one can get anything she wants! I hope you enjoyed a look in on an up and rising Star.
