I'd Like To Try To Play It

My late father was in a marching band in high school back in the days before WW2, he played the cornet. The difference between a cornet and a trumpet eluded me but there had to be some important difference to give them their own names. Makes sense to I guess. All I know is that I'd like to see if I can at least try to make this instrument create some music from my lips and lungs. I took a look on fl studio 10 to see what the differences were and I felt kind of foolish thinking the trumpet was similar to the cornet based on the tube work. The cornet seemed a bit more complicated the way the tubing wrapped like a snake around itself as opposed to the trumpets clean, sleek styling. I think, perhaps, the first thing I'm going to do is do a search for cornet videos to actually see the playing of this instrument and maybe find some instructional video as well. I'm sure it won't be that difficult to find in this day and age, unlike yesteryear.
