The Trumpet is one of the most versatile instruments you will ever encounter, and it's also one of the most challenging to learn. Why? Because the instrument doesn't make any sound on its own!
In this class for totally new players, you'll get advice on choosing an instrument, learn how to create a sound, and practice creating a beautiful tone. Next, you'll be guided through the process of playing 5 different notes by using the valves and your new found magic chops!
By following the clips you will be guided through the process of making a sound and changing it by using your lips and airstream at first, and later by using the valves, until you are able to change through 5 different notes.
You are encouraged to upload a video at each stage (at the end of each clip) to share your progress - the final clip details the project and requires you to film yourself playing the notes C, D, E, F and G, before slurring smoothly between C and G.
All will become clear as you follow the class, and the stages are demonstrated along the way.
If you are too shy to film yourself playing - just upload the audio (although video is helpful to check your technique - not essential)
Have fun :)
