Trumpet, Trombone, Baritone, French Horn & Tuba Lessons
As a beginning brass student you will focus on the development of proper breathing techniques through exercises designed to strengthen the muscles needed to produce a steady and strong air supply. Good posture is stressed as is the importance of developing a proper embouchure which involves learning to use your facial muscles and lips correctly to produce sound on your instrument. Tuning, music reading skills and correct fingering or slide positions are covered as well.
More advanced students may concentrate on refining their technique and interpreting brass repertoire representing a variety of musical styles. Students who are enrolled in their school music program are encouraged to bring their school music to their lessons at The Music Studio.
