trumpet and trombone lessons

If you are a music lover and are interested in learning a brass instrument, you’ve come to the right place. Will Hall is a professional trombonist and highly educated and experienced trumpet and trombone teacher.

Instruments Taught​

As an expert brass instrumentalist, Will has a Bachelor of Music with Honours and a Postgraduate Diploma with distinction. Therefore, he is suitably experienced and qualified to provide lessons for a variety of different brass instruments, including:

  • Trombone

  • Trumpet

  • Cornet – For the uninitiated, a cornet is a trumpet-like brass instrument. The difference between a cornet and a trumpet is it has a conical bore, is more compact in shape and produces a mellower and softer tone.

  • Euphonium – The Euphonium looks very similar to a Tuba, but plays a range of slightly higher notes. It is medium-sized and comes in either 3 or 4 valve varieties with a conical bore and tenor-voice. The name comes from the Greek word for “sweet-voiced” or “well-sounding”.

  • Baritone – Often referred to simply as a baritone or a baritone horn, this is a brass instrument that has a low pitch range and piston-valves and bore that is, for the most part, conical, but narrower than that of the Euphonium which has a similar pitch.

Lessons for Children
