Whether you’re 11 and just starting, or a bit older and rediscovering your horn, check out the videos below, or check out the newly organized YouTube channels I’ve created on Trumpet for Beginners, Trumpet Lessons, Trumpet Maintenance, Trumpet Mutes, Trumpet Sound Effects, and Scales for Trumpeters.
And even if I do say it myself, the very best book out there for beginners, comeback players, and intermediate players is Sound the Trumpet: How to Blow Your Own Horn. Get a copy and save yourself hours and even years of practice.
Here are a few videos to get you started on the right foot. Please excuse the one-sided audio in a couple of these. They were made years ago, before I figured out my recording gear. The information is still solid! Let me know in the comments if you have any specific questions or difficulties.
Over 80 more videos on many topics over at my YouTube site (see links above). Do yourself a solid and get a copy of Sound the Trumpet: How to Blow Your Own Horn:
