A brass instrument, Trumpet are used in several genres of music including classical, jazz, marching and brass bands, rock, ska, funk, and more. Our teachers can help students learn to play Trumpet in whatever style they are interested in while also learning proper technique.
The Trumpet is played by blowing air into the mouthpiece through closed lips. This causes a buzzing sensation for the player and sends vibrations through the instrument to create its high, brassy sound. Most modern trumpets have three valves which can be depressed in a combination of ways to create different pitches, but other notes are sounded by adjusting the embouchure or lip firmness. The most common Trumpet is pitched in Bb, but several other variations of the instrument exist making it very versatile.
