Trumpet Fingering Technique

David Bilger (Trumpet Fingering Technique)

Trumpet players, like most musicians, have a desirable goal of playing fast! Some of this comes from proper trumpet articulation, other times it’s being able to read the notes quickly and concisely, but oftentimes it is dependent on your three fingers, how those digits work, and what fingerings you need to utilize for certain passages. In this blog, David Bilger of the Philadelphia Orchestra talks about important trumpet fingering choices to help play with quality articulation and get through difficult passages that might include trills or slurs with ease.

 

David shares his tricks of the trumpet trade in this video where he offers some insight into his own daily routine to develop and maintain quick finger technique. He also delves into the importance of choosing the right combination of valves and how they can even affect your intonation and allow your playing to be more nimble.

David’s classical trumpet course at ArtistWorks is unlike anything you can find online, as he brings years of playing with the Philadelphia Orchestra and various symphonies into his lesson library. David enjoys teaching students at any level and emphasizes the importance of honing your foundational skills from the very start of your musical journey. His lessons are easy to navigate as they help players achieve clarity, a wider range, more accuracy and a rich, beautiful trumpet sound with proper embouchure and breath control.
