Many of my students have the same objectives with their playing. One of things I place great importance on is learning to pratice and play efficiently. My trumpet lessons are very much adapted to each student, but generally include:

 

  • trouble shooting problems with pitch and sound production

  • improving sound production, articulation and attacks

  • right hand technique

  • efficient use of practice time

  • improving range and stamina

  • breathing

  • equipment advice

  • cognitive techniques

 

The last one is very important as one of the obstacles to progress is an inability to apply understood concepts to our playing. This is where a change of mindset is needed, so we can change habits that we may have had for many years. I have helped many of my students"change their minds" to become better players.
