Transforming Trumpet Players into Horn Players

Clinic Synopsis:

This clinic will give a step-by-step process for the successful transformation of a trumpet player into a horn player. Many music educators find themselves with too many trumpet players and not enough horn players. Thus, this transformation is a common occurrence, but not always a successful one. This clinic will help teachers erase those “trumpet traits” that remain, and set their horn players on a path to success.
