Our Trumpet Lessons in London

Trumpet Lessons London - Bruce Music

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.

Studying Trumpet Grade Exams

trumpet classes London - Bruce Music

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!

Professional service from talented teachers. Recommended.

Paul Cunliffe


I’d highly recommend Bruce Music to anyone who wants to pick up music lessons. I initially emailed them asking about getting guitar lessons, and they responded the same day. I have weekly lessons with Daniel Armstrong and am thoroughly enjoying them.

As a beginner it can be daunting to learn a new skill, but Daniel is a very patient and personable teacher. The lessons are very convenient as I have the teacher come to my house, and each week I feel more capable than the week before. Overall I’m incredibly happy, so thank you!

Melissa Pearce


I’ve been having lessons for about a year and it’s been brilliant. I was a self-taught Guitarist for a few years and I’ve always sung as well anyway. When I started having lessons I made a really big leap up in both those things. I’m now starting to play open mic nights around London, which has always been an ambition, so I’m really happy with that and I highly recommend Bruce Music.

Joe Whitehead


Brilliant. Good communication and even better service. Always a pleasure to deal with Alex and met some great new people along the way. Highly recommended for both beginners and experienced players looking to extend their musical knowledge and skills. Thanks guys!



My son has been learning Guitar for a couple of years now. He moved on from electric guitar to classical, and his new teacher helped in developing interest in Classical guitar. My son has now wanted to continue with Classical guitar after gaining a Merit in Trinity Grade 1 and I must compliment the patience and attention from the Tutor (Daniel) in this achievement. He teaches in an easy-going manner while explaining practical skills and music theory. I would highly recommend Bruce Music.

Arunima Saha


I have been taught by Alex for 2-3 months now, and I have improved a lot, as his lessons are very productive and you learn a lot from it.

Murilo Ferrari


Alex is a fantastic guitar teacher. I’ve been having lessons almost every week for two years and my ability has improved drastically. He teaches with a friendly, easy-going manner, with a good balance between practical skills and music theory.

Have already recommended to other friends. Would definitely recommend again.

Andy Mills


I’ve been taking guitar lessons from Bruce Music for a few months now, and am quite excited about how it’s gone so far – from knowing nothing about how to play the guitar, I was singing and playing to my first numbers within 3-4 lessons!! Being a work professional, I love the fact that Bruce Music is flexible on scheduling lessons – which allows me to continue with them. Teaching style is completely tailored to my individual needs as opposed to a one-size-fits-all approach. Brilliant so far!

Ayan Banerjee


Alex is a fantastic teacher. I’m not always the best student but he’s always amazingly patient and I learn a lot.

Kate Mansfield


I am an absolute beginner & was very nervous but Alex put me at ease. He is so patient & explains everything so I could understand. Very impressed would recommend him to anyone.

Caroline Pulman


I’ve been really impressed with Bruce Music. Alex’s service and correspondence is always quick and personal. Their teacher Daniel has been teaching my son for about a year. My son enjoys playing and practicing and has even started a band. It’s great to see him enjoying music. Would definitely recommend.

Jane Metcalfe


Very pleased with the teaching and service.
I looked online for a company to teach my 15-year-old son guitar lessons. I chose this company because they were located nearby. They answered my query company immediately. They have been on time for every lesson and come to the home. We have done about 8 lessons thus far – on a weekly basis – 1 hour each. I believe that they do also provide lessons for other areas of London. My son has improved tremendously so far and is loving his lessons. The teacher – Alex – is perfectly suited to his personality and pays a lot of attention to what my son is interested in learning. I cannot recommend this company highly enough!!!

S E Wright


An excellent guitar teacher. Made it super easy for me to learn and play the guitar, and I had no experience what so ever. Highly recommended.

Udi Klein


Bruce Music offering is great. Alex in particular is an excellent teacher, I’ve made progress very quickly starting from absolute scratch and enjoy every class. In addition he is quite flexible with timings/booking slots, which helps a lot for people that have a busy schedule. I wholeheartedly recommend his service

Alessandro Vaturi


I have had many lessons with Alex and it has been really great from the beginning. He is a perfect teacher and I have improved a lot despite having played for years before those lessons. He is patient and really dedicated, so when I left London, I decided to keep having sessions with him on Skype. A great teacher!

Loic Maitre


I have been using the services of Bruce music for a couple of years now. The quality of teaching has far exceeded that of previous guitar teachers that I have used, and as such my guitar playing has improved significantly. I can highly recommend Bruce music as they provide a personal and professional service as a music tuition agency.

Stephen Reynolds


Where do I start… my 5 (yes 5, now 6) year old daughter was obsessed with playing the guitar and I looked into lessons with great trepidation. Was it way too ambitious? Would it be a waste of money? Would a 5 year old really get anything out of lessons and engage? I talked to Alex at Bruce music and he said it was certainly possible and that I should give it a go. I have been truly stunned and amazed. Thanks to Luke, her incredible tutor; she not only enjoys every single minute of her lesson with him, she has learned so much too. She’s learning to read music and is now strong enough to play some cords now and some little tunes. We will continue to sign up again and again – the best extra curricular class I have ever signed her up for without a doubt. Would recommend without hesitation.

Jackie Boot


Alex is an incredible teacher. I’ve learned so much from him. He has vast knowledge of music and an ability to teach that is invaluable! He is full of enthusiasm, knowledge and has a great deal of experience. These lessons are one of the highlights of my week 🙂

Anna Williams


Alex is a great teacher and very friendly. He’s really good at tailoring the classes to my needs, so I can get the most of it. Knows his craft really well and has flexible class schedules. I would definitely recommend him.

Francesc Donaire


As a guitar beginner Alex found me a wonderful teacher, I have a good laugh whilst being taught with great progress. I took up the instrument late in life and wished I took it up a lot earlier but even at my age the speed of the progress has been worth while.
Thanks Bruce music

Graham L


Alexcellent! (sorry).
Anyway, guitar lessons here are very good and thoroughly enjoyable. I had given myself a 6-month ultimatum that I’d sell my guitar/amp/processor if I don’t see tangible improvements in my playing. Happy to report that was 7 months ago and I’m making far more progress than I did in the preceding 2 years noodling about on the guitar. Importantly, Alex has a great ability to break things down. His tips on learning difficult bits in songs and on practicing more effectively are proving very valuable for me. He’s also a great guy, communicates clearly and has a great attitude for an instructor. Highly recommend.

Vikram Subhedar


I have been working with Bruce Music for about 8 months and have gone from not being able to play a chord to playing songs I love. Alex is an excellent teacher with the right balance of patience and persistence to push my playing to higher and higher levels. In addition, Alex has a great attitude towards his students and is always willing to work around changes in schedule. Absolutely would recommend to an aspiring player.

David Raabe


I’ve been having lessons with Alex for two years now and I’m incredibly happy with how things have gone. My playing and theory has come along massively, and he’s always focused on finding my goals and working to help me achieve them. Alex has also been super encouraging – he even attended my first gig to give support! And whenever I’ve been finding something hard, he’s always found a way to re-present at the right level of challenge.

I’ve really enjoyed my lessons and they’ve really grown my guitar skills. I’m planning to continue well into the future.
I’d absolutely recommend Bruce Music to anyone else who’s looking to learn.

Sebastian Wolf


My son has been learning the guitar with Alex Bruce for about 2 years. Alex makes the lessons so much fun that he looks forward to his lesson each week! Alex has such patience and enthusiasm that the children love, so they always practice without reminding. Alex has taught my son many techniques so he is very confident in performing. His lessons are current and loads of fun.
