Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Where do lessons take place?
A: Lessons take place in the student’s home.
Q: I don’t have a trumpet, what trumpet should I buy?
A: I have found that Yamaha make very reliable and good quality instruments for beginners, and they are generally what I recommend. Below are two (new) trumpets that would be good.
If you are looking for a second hand instrument I would recommend looking on Gumtree for a bargain. I would be happy to offer advice on any potential purchases - a beginner used instrument would cost approx around $350. I would look for a similar used Yamaha model. Please don't hesitate to ask if you have any questions.
