Trumpet Lessons - My teaching ability would be suitable for absolute beginners to early intermediates (i.e. primary school level to early high school). For trumpet, it is key to start by introducing beginners to the foundations of sound technique (e.g. how to manipulate the embouchure), as well as the importance of tone (developed by a sound embouchure and affected by varying degrees of pressure). With these foundations, students will be well placed to move onto playing songs.While I certainly believe in introducing students to their instrument and relevant techniques, my teacher instilled in me the understanding that I (the student) was the craftsman and artist of my instrument and he was simply a guide to help me along the way. Therefore, each students musical journey should be unique, and my goal as a teacher is to accelerate their progression to wherever they wish to go with their instrument, whether it be classical, jazz, or to develop and all-round technique that lends itself to any style. A typical lesson structure for a beginner- intermediate would generally involve a 10-20 minute block of technical work (depending on the student) based on scales, chord progressions etc., with the remainder devoted to applying this technical skill to pieces (also with relevant theory if the student wishes). I believe that no matter what the students level, I as the teacher have the responsibility to ensure students enjoy a positive relationship with their instrument, so that their practice is not a chore but rather becomes a favourite activity.
