Pay close attention, because the content of this course is pure gold: the entire trumpet philosophy of one of the people who know our instrument best, Stephen Burns, condensed in just over an hour and a half. Lessons that range from how we should focus our study to how to phrase, for example. A real gem.
As we all know, Vince is someone who has dedicated his entire life to the trumpet. To us, he is a fountain of knowledge and we have enormous luck that he is with us at Trumpet Magazine. In this extremely interesting course, Vince goes over various aspects that he considers basic in order to dominate our instrument.
Kenneth's routine is very balanced throughout the register. In fact, he places special emphasis in the lower register, since his duties in the orchestra require him to be. If you want to obtain a good lower register, you’re going to get many positive ideas from this course.
Pierre Thibaud made a personal compilation of the Schlossberg method, dividing it into 3 parts (Warm-Up, Flexibility and Staccato), taking the most important exercises, and modifying some of them so that it would be possible to play it all in about 2½ hours (and it can be very beneficial if done well). Thibaud shared this compilation to Manu Mellaerts (principal trumpet of La Monnaie Symphony Orchestra, professor at the Royal Conservatory of Brussels and leader of Belgian Brass) and now Mellaerts is sharing it with the members of Trumpet Magazine. Undoubtedly, this series of video lessons is a gem, take advantage of it.
In this great series of video lessons, Dennis Edelbrock (adjunct professor of Trumpet at George Mason University) offers us his enormous experience as a trumpeter and as a teacher, teaching us how to practice intelligently and getting the most out of it.
José Cháfer gives us an extremely complete practice routine that takes in the majority of technical aspects necessary for playing the trumpet. He pays special attention not on what to practice but on how to practice them.
