The Trumpet Players page on Facebook just clued me in on a the Chromatik web site, a site for learning how to play an instrument, including trumpet. I can’t vouch for all the videos on there, but it looks like one of them is a trumpet video lesson of mine (on playing thirds). I’ve posted around 80 trumpet video lessons which you can find on YouTube here. I’ve uploaded videos like this for every key if you’re interested. Check out Chromatik site, too, and see if there’s any good stuff on there.
Below is my video on playing thirds that Chromatik chose to include on the site, and what’s really cool (you have to click through to see it), is that on Chromatik, the music theory I talk about is illustrated with written notation.Much more useful and informative than my original video. Such a great addition! I love the internet. When information is free, everybody benefits.
