Trumpet, one of the most physically demanding instruments, requires daily practice for success. Therefore, emphasis will be placed on learning proper practice techniques. Trumpet lessons will consist of the student and teacher playing together so there will be a learning by example dynamic.
Studies will be done in as many key signatures as is practical for the level of the student. Improvement in tone quality, endurance, range and fluency in the keys is the yardstick by which progress will be measured. We will use trumpet pieces from various method books and improvise to keyboard accompaniments of well known pieces.
