Trumpet Place – The New Agency for Trumpet Teachers and Students



Learn from the best.

Everyone starts playing trumpet at different ages, but we all start as beginners. From the first cracked note to all three movements of the Haydn Trumpet Concerto, teachers from all around the world skillfully nurture their students’ talent on the trumpet.

TRUMPET PLACE is a website dedicated to bring trumpet students and teachers together in a collaborative space. It seems that many trumpet players in school don’t take lessons, simply because they can’t find a teacher!

If you’re a trumpet player, TRUMPET PLACE is the new online trumpet hub for students, teachers, and performing players throughout the United States. The mission of this website is to provide an affordable listing tool for teachers, so that they can keep doing what they do best: teaching the next generation of trumpet players how to fanfare, flutter, and feel that jazzy rhythm.

One of the most difficult parts of being a trumpet teacher is finding private students. It seems that less and less musicians go into private teaching because not enough students want to take private lessons. The truth is, they don’t know where to find us!

Whether you choose to teach virtually or in person, TRUMPET PLACE provides the platform for students to find you where you are. Help parents learn about your location, your schooling, credentials, and any other information to help them make a decision.

You’ll even get your own fancy webpage, right here at TrumpetPlace.com!
