New Trumpet Student
I am a senior music education major at Dickinson State University, in Dickinson, ND. I am going to be teaching lessons to and 8th grader. I am not sure of her current ability, but am looking for suggestion on lesson material for her. Does any one have any suggestion?
Re: New Trumpet Student
One of the great classes I took under Gerald Webster was a methods class. We played through and sort of analysed the way a bunch of methods and technique books were set up. This way, with a new student, we can choose between a method for "grown up" 8th graders (like Mitchell) or "just wanna have fun" 8th graders, (like Yamaha). The first lesson (or first few) can be done without the music, giving you time to get a feel for your student. If you are needing some more credits, this would make an outstanding independent study project. Good luck!
