Our Trumpet Lessons in London
We provide tailored, engaging trumpet lessons at your home or other chosen location, anywhere in London. Or, students are welcome to visit their local Bruce Music teacher who will host their trumpet lessons
The trumpet is a beautiful, traditional instrument that’s central to many styles of music – most notably Jazz, Classical, Swing, Fusion, Big Band, and Military. The trumpet also often plays feature parts in Rock and Folk music.
There have been numerous famous trumpet players in recent musical history, Miles Davis and Louis Armstrong being two of the most notable. It’s also worth looking at more modern, present-day trumpet players such as Wynton Marsalis, Ibrahim Maalouf, and Matthew Halsall.
Taking trumpet lessons can lead to – besides musicality, enjoyment, and satisfaction – many creative and social opportunities too, for children and adults alike, via Jazz bands, orchestras, and jazz-blues jam nights.
Our experienced, qualified trumpet teachers design bespoke lesson plans to tailor their approach to what enthuses and engages the individual trumpet student.
Trumpet Lesson Content
At Bruce Music, our trumpet lessons blend core trumpet technique, with musicianship, repertoire, and a fun engagement with the instrument, and music as a whole.
We build from the very beginning – posture and positioning, holding the trumpet, finger placement, and breathing techniques. From there our focus is working towards trumpet repertoire – pieces, songs, and melodies that are fun to play, and develop technique and musicality.
Absolute beginners don’t be shy! We enjoy the privilege of guiding those who are new to the trumpet, or music in general, along the path to musicianship – inspiring excitement and fun around playing the trumpet and being musical.
At Bruce Music, we only hire trumpet teachers who are experienced, qualified, encouraging, patient, and friendly. Trumpet teachers must possess all of these traits to join our London team. All the team are also DBS checked for your safety and reassurance. We take our safeguarding responsibilities extremely seriously and make no exceptions.

Studying Trumpet Grade Exams
We’re very proud that our students – in all instruments – hold a 100% pass rate in all grade exams taken to date. Many of these students also achieved a distinction or merit. This gives us great confidence in our trumpet teachers’ methods.
In our experience, studying for – and passing – trumpet grade exams can provide a strong sense of structure, satisfaction, and confidence, and is a particularly good route for children and adults who are highly structured learners, who like a strong framework, or the sense of something concrete to work towards.
At Bruce Music, we have many years’ experience adapting to the ever-changing criteria of the major exam boards who offer trumpet exams. With our trumpet teachers’ insights, and your talent and passion, you’ll pass with top marks!
Something crucial to our ethos is that we don’t simply ‘teach to the test’ to the cost of your overall musicianship. You will pass the exams, of course, but we won’t sacrifice your musicianship, or enjoyment along the way.
Bruce Music trumpet students pass their grades – but become good musicians too. Too often, this aspect is neglected. We equally love working with trumpet students not wishing to take their grades. Our aims remain that you progress, and enjoy music!
