Trumpet lessons in home are a convenient way to learn an instrument. In home lessons are structured the same way as in-studio and there is no additional travel time. Our teachers generally teach students one lesson a week.
Our teachers create a custom lesson and technique plan for each student. For the most part, lessons will focus around learning how to hold and care for the instrument, how to prepare it for playing, how to read music, sight read, and basic musicianship skills. Students will also focus on mouth position and breath support to play the trumpet, and the location of the valves.
Taking trumpet lessons as an adult is a great way to learn a new skill. Many of our adult students may have played trumpet as a child, and want to pick it back up again. Adult students can generally notice a lot of progress in a short time, provided they are practicing every day between their lessons.
Children are recommended to start the trumpet at age 7 or 8. A student needs to be able to hold and support the weight of the instrument for extended periods, and also have enough lung capacity to support the sound.
