What You'll Learn

What ultimately sets these classical trumpet lessons apart from other offerings is the ability to submit a video for review using the ArtistWorks Video Exchange Learning® platform. David reviews each submission and records a video response, offering specific guidance to take your trumpet playing to the next level.
