About Brass Instrument Lessons

Our Murrieta and Menifee based Music Academy provides private Trumpet and Trombone instruction for students ages 8 and up. Whether you want a Brass instrument teacher for classical, jazz, or school band class support, we've got you covered. Our brass instructors have played and recorded professionally for many years. The lessons are customized to help players of any level from the beginner to the very advanced trumpet and trombone student.

Levels of Brass Instrument Lessons

Different stages of learning as well as personal preference will dictate different programs of study, which is why private instruction is best. Most students will not reach the advanced level of playing, which is fine because not everyone wants to be a professional brass player. What is important is that each student can go as far as his or her dedication and desire will allow.

Fun Facts About Brass Instrument Lessons

1. While modern brass instruments are typically made of brass, historically, they were made from various materials like wood, bronze, silver, and even gold.

2. The modern trumpet's design is said to be inspired by the shofar, a traditional Jewish musical instrument made from a ram's horn.

3. The trombone was introduced to the world in the famous 5th Symphony, by Ludwig van Beethoven.

4. The oldest known brass instrument is the "Roman Tuba," dating back to the 1st century AD. It was a large and straight brass instrument used in military processions and ceremonies.
