Kurt Thompson started playing trumpet officially in 5th grade. However, by the end of 6th grade, he was last chair and the worst trumpet player in the band. Kurt enjoyed school sports more at that time.
During the summer between 6th and 7th grade, Kurt got with a private instructor for the first time and his talent at trumpet became obvious when he actually made an effort. Kurt started 7th grade and by the Christmas concert was 1st chair. Kurt was first chair in almost every band from that point on.
WALNUT CREEK, CA
Willing to teach
Advanced students only.
I teach trumpet lessons from beginner through professional.
If it is a pro, I am usually working with them on high or extreme high register techniques.
My clinics almost always focus on improving the upper register of the trumpet or on very young students who are not involved with lessons and why they would want to consider trumpet lessons
