Pedagogy: Mute guide

Here’s another resource I made for trumpet students. Much of this information comes from David Hickman’s excellent book, Trumpet Pedagogy. It would be a lot of fun to turn this into a more interactive online page with some video examples for different brands/types of mutes. Put a mute in it!

David John Lang, Song Without Words

This year, I acted as contest coordinator for the Reveille Trumpet Collective‘s first ever Composition Prize. All of us were immediately drawn to the eventual winner, Song Without Words by David John Lang, 21, of Adelaide, Australia. This piece was chosen from over twenty entries to receive the grand prize.
