Are YOU a struggling trumpet player?
Do you regularly work with someone who makes playing the trumpet seem effortless and easy?
Do you want to improve your sound, stamina & range?
All of these things can be learnt and I think you'll be surprised to know, quite quickly!
It wasn't that long ago when I was only comfortable up to high F's and sometimes, even that was a srtuggle, especially at the end of the evening!
I am now playing up to double high C and beyond but more importantly, I am finding it easy. My sound has improved massively, stamina is not an issue.
Whilst I can't promise to wave a magic wand and teach everybody the same as me, I can teach you the process that I have been through to get to where I am now.
Check out the video, as I said, it's not all about high notes, I can also teach you how to make a beautiful warm and warm sound too!
I will be covering so many aspects, topics and concerns that trumpet players struggle with.
If the Patreon really takes off, I will also be inviting world class players along to the monthly zoom call/hangout to share their knowledge with the Patreon members!
I am in the process of creating an online trumpet player community over at Patreon.
I have overcome many, many issues associated with trumpet playing and have worked with and had lessons with many of the finest players in the world!
Some of these include - Bobby Shew - Derek Watkins - Conte Candoli - Buddy Childers - Stuart Brooks - Jim Manley - To name only a few
The monthly lessons will focus on breathing, attack, range, jazz tips and tricks, articulation, tonguing, flexibility, sound, stamina.....
The lessons will be monthly.
They monthly package will include -
