So why do I think the combination of my trumpetlessonsonline.com is any better than the others you might ask?
Well I will tell you…..
After playing and teaching trumpet for over seven decades, you’ve got to learn something!
I have tried many concepts, methods, tricks, routines, patterns and methods which have been interesting and sometimes helpful to my trumpet career. But after a considerable amount of contemplation, I was able to limit the material down to two very important and helpful products, i.e. trumpetlessonsonline.com and Claude Gordon’s method, “Systematic Approach to Daily Practice”.
One (Systematic Approach to Daily Practice) gives you everything you need to know to become a proficient player of the trumpet and the other (trumpetlessonsonline.com) gives you the insight into the requirements of a trumpet position in the world of music.
Knowing how to play your instrument is vitally important for you will be expected to perform in a consistently accurate and musical fashion.
In addition to knowing how to play the correct notes, you will also need to know how to get along as a professional musician and Mr. Gordon did not include that important information in his book.
Through the many video lessons at trumpetlessonsonline.com you will be introduced to real life expectations and problem solving information.
To give you a small sample of the practical material in these video lessons, read the following subjects.
Warm Up & Cool Down
Alterations to your Equipment
“And these four examples are even the free lessons available on the site”.
Additional topics illustrated in this series of video lessons are the following-
