Studying trumpet in Cincinnati, whether you are in a school music program or an experienced player looking to sharpen your chops, is a worthy endeavor. Building your fluidity as a soloist, improving your sight-reading skills, expanding your repertoire of learned material, and developing your tone and breath control will all do wonders to elevate your playing.
The trumpet has a remarkable tone, and many of the 20th Century’s most revered American musicians chose the trumpet for their musical expression. From the jazz charisma of Louis Armstrong, Dizzy Gillespie, Clifford Brown, and Roy Eldridge, to the Latin innovations of Arturo Sandoval and Diego Urcola, to the classical virtuosity of Wynton Marsalis, Maurice Andre, Sergei Narkariakov, and Alison Balsom, to the world-expanding innovation of Miles Davis, trumpet has been a driving force in modern music.
Trumpet In Marching Band
As a marching band instrument, trumpet is a marvelous choice. The instrument’s ability to project means that trumpet players get to play a lot of the band’s melodies. The position the trumpet holds in the frequency range of an orchestra or concert band makes it ideally suited for featured parts in the arrangements.
The Toedtman School of Music’s trumpet instructors are seasoned and beloved professionals. Mike Wade has recorded with Clark Terry, David “Fathead” Newman, Bobby Watson, Mulgrew Miller, Gary Bartz, Bootsy Collins, the O’Jays, E.U., among many others, and Jazziz Magazine named him Wade of the top ten unsigned jazz brass players.
