  • Trumpet: Basics 1

    Authored by Max Matzen

    Welcome to Trumpet: Basics 1! This course is designed to introduce students to the trumpet in an effective, gradual and fun way that will lay a solid foundation for growth on the instrument. Throughout this course students will study must-know technique and practice habits for learning how to play. They will also learn how to read music, eventually branching into a little bit of composition and improvisation. Through exploring the history of this instrument, students will better understand how the instrument’s design has evolved and how it functions to produce sound. Important players will be spotlighted to show what the capabilities of the instrument are across different genres and time periods. Students can expect to encounter a variety of listening and playing assignments, as well as lesson quizzes and exams. By the end of the course, students will have a portfolio of recordings that reflect the progress they made and will be ready for the next semester!

  • Trumpet: Basics 2

    Authored by Max Matzen

    Welcome to Trumpet: Basics 2! This course is a continuation of Trumpet: Basics 1, and is designed to further develop students’ trumpet abilities. Continuing the exploration of music theory and sight-reading, this course will cover the twelve major scales, and the chromatic scale. Slightly more advanced flexibilities and playing in a higher range, as well as the H.L. Clarke Technical Studies book, will ensure students are challenging their chops. Important players—and their practice routines—will be studied to inspire students to find their own way to play and improve. Students can expect to encounter a variety of listening and playing assignments, as well as lesson quizzes and exams. By the end of the course, students will have a portfolio of recordings that reflect the progress they made and will be ready for the next semester!
