Take a trumpet lesson and learn to play trumpet effortlessly.

YOU are here to improve your trumpet playing.
I started teaching in 1974. In 1995 I started writing trumpet books. For over 40 years I have been helping trumpet players and teachers to play trumpet easier.

Most players have a misunderstanding of how physical actions work for each register. They use the wrong physical action in the wrong register and it doesn't work. They don't know what to change, when to change, or how to change their actions.
The reason this happens is that trumpet mechanics are not taught in school. A person can get a BM, MM, DMA in Trumpet and never take 1 course on brass embouchures.
So when the teachers and pros have problems, they come to see me.

YOU want a trumpet teacher that is respected by other trumpet teachers.
I have been featured in articles in The International Trumpet Guild Journal, Wind Player Magazine and Overture an American Federation of Musicians publication. I have been mentioned in over a dozen books written by other trumpet teachers, in clinics, dissertations, forums, magazines, web sites and even you-tube videos posted by other teachers. I have given lessons to and gotten testimonials from ITG Officers, College Trumpet Professors, Authors of Trumpet Books and Pro Players. Go here for more info about me.

YOU want to be a successful trumpet player.
There are over 100 testimonials from professional trumpet teachers and playing trumpet pros on my testimonial page. They gave them to me because my trumpet books and trumpet lessons work. I have helped thousands of trumpet players to enjoy playing again. I have also helped players and comeback players to become full time professional trumpet players.

Here is one such player:
Pops: You have single-handedly given me the confidence and the ability to meet - EXCEED my wildest dreams. When I first came to you I never would have believed I would tour with Maynard Ferguson!!! - thanks Pops - Keith Fiala

New Video EBook. Mouthpieces: What will it sound like? Mouthpiece charts are horrible at helping you decide about a new mouthpiece. This 10 page EBook has 2 hours and 20 minutes of people playing different mouthpiece depths, sizes, throats, mega sleeves... I played 7 different depths and 4 pieces with and without a mega sleeve for the videos. (I played that many just to show how much difference each depth made. In real life I would maybe use 2.)

The 4 Trumpet Octave Keys. New book that teaches you 4 things that most players do NOT do that can easily be Octave keys for us.

Thermal Imaging Study of Trumpet Players.

For the New Year 2014, I have lowered the price on 9 books and videos by at least 20%.

I just got this note from Jim Manley who bought my Tension-Less Playing EBook a few days ago. He mentions only the didgeridoo part but there are several steps outlined in the book to get to the result he talks about.

This whole didgeridoo thing had me intrigued. So I ordered one and to my surprise, I couldn't get a note (drone) out the thing for the first 1/2 hour.
Geez - here I am thinking I am playing so relaxed.
I can drone now and of course when I pick up the trumpet the sound is much fatter and more vibrant. It will take some practice - but thanks - a real eye opener for me. I will certainly recommend the ebook to guys.
Thanks again
Jim Manley
PS - The New Arban's book is a b*itch!

Tension-Less Playing. New book that teaches you HOW to relax and stop fighting your face and your trumpet so that you can double your endurance.

The New Expanded Range Arban Ebook by Pops.
New 954 page Arban based Ebook. I took most of The Arban Book and wrote some new stuff and did each exercise in many keys so the range extends up an octave higher than in the Old Arban Book.

The New Expanded Clarke Technical Studies. Clarke etudes are too high for middle school players and too low for advanced players. I put the studies and etudes in multiple keys so that you could concentrate on the register that YOU need to work.

Ask a question. At some point we have all had questions. Often we just can't ask our teachers. I've been there. I'll answer your questions. Simple inexpensive $10 for my undivided attention.
