Hi my names Charlie, I'm a trumpet player/composer/performer and teacher currently based in Melbourne, Australia.
I am a qualified and experienced trumpet teacher, dedicated to helping students achieve their individual goals through lessons. I’ve completed a Bachelor of Fine Arts (Music Performance) at Victorian College of the Arts on trumpet and have had over 5 years of playing and teaching experience.
Lessons cover essential elements of playing trumpet including:
Technique – Whole body relaxed, relaxed breathing, relaxed lips, face,arms, working on zero tension
Tone – Developing a warm or bright tone
Improvising – Developing solos, learning a variety of approaches and methods for improvising.
Repertoire – Learning songs and reading music
Theory – Reading notated music, learning basic chord/scale relationship
Aural – Developing aural skills, working on playing what you hear on the spot, Charlie can also help with preparations for auditions and VCE performances.
Feel free to email or call if you have any questions or would like to discuss anything!
