Brass Bootcamp

Join Dr. Evan Duke “live” online Monday evenings at 7pm Eastern!
Ages 14 and up
Cost: $79

You spend months practicing for a major performance. When the day arrives, many things go well, but the results are far from perfect, and a sense of falling short settles into your thinking. Although you practiced and did everything right, why were you unsuccessful?

The problem may not be in performance preparation, but rather, technical maintenance.

This course will provide a framework for developing a solid technical regimen that incorporates the fundamentals of trumpet play—whether in a full practice session utilizing the entire routine or on a rehearsal day using an abbreviated routine. Fundamentals that we will cover include:

• Flow studies (utilizing air attacks)
• Intervals (slurred and tongued)
• Multiple tonguing drills
• Lip flexibility drills
• Fingering drills

Don’t miss this opportunity to discover Dr. Duke’s personal technical approach that has enabled his professional mastery as a consistent trumpet performer!
