Trumpet Place – The New Agency for Trumpet Teachers and Students

Learn from the best.

Everyone starts playing trumpet at different ages, but we all start as beginners. From the first cracked note to all three movements of the Haydn Trumpet Concerto, teachers from all around the world skillfully nurture their students’ talent on the trumpet.

TRUMPET PLACE is a website dedicated to bring trumpet students and teachers together in a collaborative space. It seems that many trumpet players in school don’t take lessons, simply because they can’t find a teacher!

If you’re a trumpet player, TRUMPET PLACE is the new online trumpet hub for students, teachers, and performing players throughout the United States. The mission of this website is to provide an affordable listing tool for teachers, so that they can keep doing what they do best: teaching the next generation of trumpet players how to fanfare, flutter, and feel that jazzy rhythm.

One of the most difficult parts of being a trumpet teacher is finding private students. It seems that less and less musicians go into private teaching because not enough students want to take private lessons. The truth is, they don’t know where to find us!

Whether you choose to teach virtually or in person, TRUMPET PLACE provides the platform for students to find you where you are. Help parents learn about your location, your schooling, credentials, and any other information to help them make a decision.

You’ll even get your own fancy webpage, right here at TrumpetPlace.com!




The Valveless Scale Exercise For Trumpet – By Roger Moisan


By Roger Moisan

The valve-less scale exercise.  

This is an advanced exercise for trumpet players to help develop embouchure strength, pitch surety and control.

  1. Play a strong low F to establish pitch.
  2. Remove the tuning slide and play the same note. Hold the instrument lightly and finger as if playing normally.
  3. Slowly, play up the F major scale trying to pitch and centre each note. This will be very difficult to start with especially the first 3 notes after the F. The G, A and Bb are outside the natural harmonics on the leadpipe.
  4. As the notes begin to sound more easily, play the F major scale up and down slowly. (Always finger the notes as if playing normally)
  5. Finally, replace the tuning slide and play the F major scale again slowly without the valves.

This exercise can be extended into other keys and also into playing melodies. I like to play ‘Somewhere over the Rainbow’ after the scale exercise.

Caution! This exercise is extremely tiring and should only be performed after a good warm up and rest for 5 minutes before continuing practising.

Never play this exercise in the ear shot of a fixer! They won’t understand and will think you can’t play.
