The trumpet class is characterised by a profound study of jazz vocabulary and repertoire, on the basis of which personal musical ideas and strengths are individually promoted.
The focus of the study programme is the development of an artistic personality with all its creative potential, who confidently meets the requirements of the current music business. The basis for this is the comprehensive technical and musical training and promotion of creativity and independence.
In terms of phrasing and improvisation, students are taught diversity and security in the most important styles of jazz. This lays the foundation for the creative development of an individual musical personality.
In terms of instrumental techniques, the problem areas of sound, endurance, scope and control are tackled at the physical-physiological root. In contrast to all other instrumentalists, brass players do not find a functional musical instrument consisting of a generator and resonator, instead they first have to work out the function of the vibration generator in their own bodies.
The training spectrum is rounded off by offers such as performance, different ensembles and musical projects, work in a recording studio and insights into the areas of booking/promotion/copyright.
