welcome to our new blog

welcome to our new blog where you will learn everything you need to know about playing the trumpet.


  1. also, questions regarding trumpet playing and equipment will be answered. free professional advice is a service that we offer to fellow trumpeters world-wide :-)

  2. yesterday, 2 of my students' parents (one novice & one intermediate) expressed interest in upgrading trumpets. as both were playing budget student model instruments, i quickly explained my philosophy of jumping from student to pro model. then, i compiled an e-mail to the parents and my favorite sales rep. at milano's music store, mesa az, chuck kerrigan. my e-mail included suggested brands, prices, links to several sources, including, local stores, out-of-state stores, ebay, & craig's list. the benefits and drawbacks of used & new purchases were explained. then, i sent a request for used tpts to all of my colleagues in az, including local freelancers, orchestral players, & university professors, plus, my current & former students. the response was quick and fruitful. e-mail and internet savy have allowed me to provide the best service possible to my students and their parents. it is much appreciated by all!
