Enjoy learning Trumpet
The trumpet is a principal instrument of jazz and, in New Orleans, heralds the sound of jazz — where sliding, slurring and growling notes accentuate the raw and real sounds of everyday life.
It can deliver melodies that are tender and forceful; sultry and edgy; punchy and lilting; cool and hot. It can also scream into the upper atmosphere and wake up the gods like no other instrument, cutting through a large gathering of instruments with clarity, focus and beauty.
Be prepared for an amazing journey when learning to play the trumpet – with its towering warmth it’s a great metaphor for life – you get out what you put in! At World Heart Beat Music Academy, trumpet students are taught by specialist teachers working across a range of genres, and will have ample opportunity to join our many groups and bands.
