WATCH: Boy with No Arms Plays Trumpet

For many of us, playing a musical instrument is hard. There are notes to get right and ways to hold it that can feel downright impossible.

But it turns out we have nothing to complain about.

10-year-old Jahmir Wallace, who was born without arms, has figured out how to play the trumpet ... with his feet.

His NJ school made him a special stand that holds his trumpet in place so he can push all the keys with his toes. 

When asked if he has any advice on playing an instrument, Wallace says, "Just try it."

Simple, but effective, words from a little boy who has already overcome so much.
