Posted on 11 April 2010 by Robert

While trying to learn trumpet, I’m constantly scouring the internet trying to find the best exercises and other information to help me progress. I’ve noticed that the good sites seem to be difficult to find if you don’t already know about them, and that there don’t seem to be any lists of the good ones. After a while of searching, you begin to feel like the guy below. So, I wamt to make a list for you beginners who, like me, are trying to find good information in order to become a better player.

    Thanks Robert! Some of those sites are good for all musicians and not just trumpet players.

    I’d probably add Rune Aleksandersen’s Trumpet Playing Thoughts ( there too. And maybe also Pops Trumpet College ( The site mainly promotes his books but you’ll find some interesting free tips there if you just browse a bit. O.J.’s site seems to be listed twice.

    Btw, thanks for adding my site there too!

    Thanks for those extra links, and I didn’t realize that I posted the same link twice. Whoops!
    I use your site all of the time. As a beginner to trumpet I find the exercises rather difficult but I’m progressing through them.
