Playing the Trumpet is Fun!
Whether you are picking up a trumpet for the first time or you are an experienced player, my priority is to inspire and encourage you to love playing your instrument.
Music is my passion!
I'm Alberto Pérez professional trumpet player/teacher and I will help you achieving your musical goals with a tailor-made program. My approach is to find suitable music for your technical and expressive level and work specifically on the challenges that it represents.

The most important lesson I have learned along my career is that making good music is only possible when you enjoy the process. Learning a proper technique, basis music theory and fun in music go hand-in-hand! Enjoy various musical styles including, Classical, Jazz, Funk, Reggae, Rock, Pop, Salsa and World Music.
For absolute beginners we start with the basic foundations of playing the trumpet. Good posture, breathing technique, correct embouchure and buzzing are the first steps to creating a beautiful sound on the trumpet. Learning new songs always brings the most satisfaction, but starting each lesson with some technical exercises is essential to making progress.
For the more experienced, a diverse daily warm-up and maintenance routine is crucial for improving on the trumpet. This of course includes breathing, posture, embouchure, articulation, long tones, sound production, flexibility, finger dexterity, endurance, scales/arpeggios, sight-reading and ear training. Once this routine is mastered and performed daily, you will be ready to take on any musical situation encountered in the professional world.

Whether it is a beginners trumpet or a specialised jazz or classical trumpet for an advanced player, I can help you find the best trumpet suited to your needs. Also, specially for kids, I can help you find a nice pTrumpet. They are lightweight plastic trumpets made with a great quality and available in different colours!
Enjoy the very feeling of creating art on the spot. Only few experiences can relate to it. When we explore and create, our flow state gets triggered. We are fully immersed in the activity and the world surrounding us vanishes. If you like, we may go on a journey discovering new emotions, colours, sounds, chords, scales, harmonies, textures.

I am a passionate brass performer and enthusiastic teacher. I performed in classical and modern music ensembles for more than 15 years. During this time, I attended innumerable masterclasses and had great fun in various professional experiences such as performing at Tomorrowland, an avant-garde music festival in Malta, or the great symphonic masterpieces with symphonic orchestras in Spain and the Netherlands. I hold a bachelor's and master's degree in music performance and a master's degree in music education during my official studies in Spain, Italy and the Netherlands.
