High school students, aged 15 years and older, college, professional, and amateur trumpet players and teachers who want to invest intensive time in trumpet fundamentals, solo trumpet playing, and pedagogical skills are invited to participate in the conservatory’s Trumpet Workshop. The 10-day session offers daily master classes, private lessons, performance classes. Two final aparticipant recitals conclude the week. The program is designed to be sufficiently flexible to accommodate the interests of the individual participants.

The session will feature master classes given by Roy Poper and or Arto Hoornweg using the principles of the late James Stamp that will cover specific technical and musical issues, followed by participant performances and coaching by the instructors. Students are encouraged to bring solo repertoire that they would like to work on.

You’ll have ample opportunity for practice, individual and group coaching sessions, and for those who wish, a chance to perform in recitals.

If interested in the workshop, send an e-mail to Associate Professor of Trumpet Roy Poper, Roy.Poper@oberlin.edu, in advance of the institute to discuss repertoire and any other questions you may have.
