Our trumpet lessons focus on improving your skills and playing ability, both as a soloist and within an ensemble or orchestra. We will help you achieve your goals through technique skills, tone, and more. You will walk away confident with reading, improvising, writing, and an abundance of audition material. The best part is that we make sure you are having fun in the process. Play with our student bands to experience different genres and styles.
Here’s what our typical trumpet lessons look like:
Warm-Ups- Trumpet lessons begin with warm-ups that will keep you loose and ready to play for hours. You will be able to take these home and practice on your own so that you are able to play tirelessly and effectively. We believe that music should always be engaging, so we make sure our warm-ups are not only effective but fun!
Song work- Our trumpet lessons focus on song work. The best way to learn is by playing what and who inspires you. We will show you exactly how to hit those powerful notes in your favorite songs, and focus on learning their unique sounds and techniques.
Technique and Musicianship- To grow into a better musician, we will give you some skill building work that will help you hear what is working, and how it works. These take the form of exercises, scales, chord breaking, and ear training practice. We will help you build your personal arsenal of techniques and skills that you can use to solo, improvise, and even compose your own music.
Music Theory- You will learn music theory through the song, technique, and style that you are currently working on in your trumpet lesson. To put it simply, we don’t just teach you HOW to play, but WHY it works. You will walk away with a rich understanding of music and the ability to play whatever is on your mind, with and without sheet music!
What to do when you are not here- one of the most difficult barriers to overcome while learning trumpet is knowing exactly what to practice. Sure, they all say, “PRACTICE! PRACTICE! PRACTICE!” but what and how do you practice? At the end of our trumpet lessons, we will discuss what we learned along with why we learned it. We will let you know exactly what you need to take home and how to practice it before next week’s lesson so that you are constantly growing.
