Trumpet Tips from Nick Drozdoff

Course Description

I decided to put up a series of video clips of practice sessions, including mistakes and missed notes. I thought it would be informative to the students to see and hear a professional actually practicing what he is preaching. Now, I don’t mean to imply other teachers don’t practice what they teach. However, during private lessons, the student only gets a smattering of what it its the teacher actually does when he/she practices. They don’t get to sit through the practice sessions themselves. While I do truncate for time, these video clips are indeed the real thing, played with abandon. I do some lecturing as well, in an effort to discuss what it is that I do. I hope these clips can help any player find a way to improve their own way of working.
