    hi i'm a student in high school and i've been told many times by many people that one of the best ways to improve my playing is to listen and study many of the great players before me. so i was wondering if anyone had any good names (especially in the classical field, i already have a few jazz players) for me to look into.

    thanks.

    Hi young trumpeter!
    The best great player is the one in your area that you can actually regularly go hear. If you are near a city or university with a symphony orchestra, there are countless "greats" that just haven't got the international press. Live music is always an experience that can only be supplemented by recorded stuff.
    Soak up whatever comes into your area.
    THERE IS NO REPLACEMENT FOR LIVE MUSIC!

    Trumpet T,

    There is not many Maurice Andre he is just one...probably trumpetmike wanted to say that he is the only one:::)))) Should we add few orchestral players who make wonderful job when they go solo? Mainly I agree with rowuk...There is no replacement for live music and live experiences with good musicians. I don't know where you are studying but surely you will find at least one. Anywa, you can add to your list

    Rod Franks, London Symphony Orchestra
    Maurice Murphy, London Symphony Orchestra (retired, as far as I know)
    James Watson, Royal Academy of Music
    Phil Smith, New york Philharmonic
    David Guerrier
    Eric Aubier
    Bernard Soustrot

    And look around for masterclasses with all trumpeters named in this topic by an of us...or do as I did...get on place whenever this is possible and get private lessons with these guys

    Bernard Adelstein (retired with the Cleveland Orchestra and my former teacher) is right up there with the finest.

    Who is Maurice Andre......a Spanish guitar player? :D
