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.
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.
Playing in a symphony orchestra and being a soloist requires that you perform at an elite level on a daily basis. In this series, Fernando Ciancio (principal trumpet of the Buenos Aires Philharmonic Orchestra, Argentina) shows his routine.
