Edinburgh Trumpet Lessons
We teach trumpet lessons, cornet and flugelhorn at the Morningside School of Music as
well as covering many different approaches to learning these popular
instruments. For those who want to take a slightly more relaxed approach, we
can be very specific to our student’s needs and the styles to accommodate what
they would like to learn on the trumpet.
Our teacher will offer to play with you in lessons to demonstrate the instructions
given, and to make it easier for you to understand them as well as the instrument.
The lessons offer a good variety with a focus on developing technique and sound,
as well as playing a range of repertoire ranging from Classical, Jazz and popular
to playing along with CDs of music such as Lord of the Rings; and preparing for exams should you
wish to take them. For more advanced players, there is also the possibility to be
involved with a local brass band that our teacher conducts, so that the students
can grow further. He is also happy to accompany you on the piano, which
provides a vital part of a musician’s development – playing alongside others.
Children’s Trumpet Lessons
The trumpet is a physically demanding instrument and therefore we suggest a
starting age of 9 or 10. Nevertheless, it is a very popular instrument and many
children want to learn how to play it. Our trumpet lessons are taught by a
professional who regularly performs around Scotland. We also have many links
to music stores and websites to ensure parents get the best deal when
purchasing instruments. Book a trial lesson now by calling 0131 447 1117. We
have trumpets available that our clients can use to begin lessons.
Adult Trumpet Lessons
Our trumpet teacher has years of experience working with children and adults
including complete beginners as well as more advanced students. We advise that
anyone interested in trying it out should come along for a trial lesson. We will
supply you with a trumpet during your first lesson. The tuition is fun and exciting
so, progress is usually made very quickly.
Trumpet Lessons for Teenagers
We have a firm understanding of the National 5, Higher and Advanced Higher
school music exams. Our knowledge of school exams and advice about how best
to practice can help your teenager achieve the grades they desire. We not only focus on the practical side during lessons, but we work through SQA
music theory past papers also.
For more info, please call us on 0131 447 1117 and speak to one of our music
teachers who will be happy to help.
* Please note that for hygiene purposes, we are unable to supply trumpets
beyond a trial lesson. However, you can hire a trumpet from various shops and
websites, and our teacher can offer advice on where to purchase an instrument.
