About the Area:
The trumpet studio at SUNY Fredonia provides a unique opportunity for all students
to study with a renowned trumpet faculty member. With three trumpet teachers on faculty,
no student is left to study with a graduate assistant or other fellow student. Lessons
with our artist faculty will provide you with the tools you need to succeed as a musician,
educator, or where ever your career path takes you.
From basics revisited to orchestral repertoire, solo pieces, etudes, and more, each
trumpet lesson will be tailored to your individual needs. The trumpet studio also
offers great opportunities for brass ensemble playing, brass quintet experience, and
a trumpet ensemble.
The friendships found amongst members of the trumpet studio extend beyond the walls
of Mason Hall, including studio picnics, outings for bowling, and other scheduled
The large ensemble opportunities available to trumpet players at SUNY Fredonia include
orchestra, opera orchestra, musical pit orchestra, wind ensemble, wind symphony, concert
band, and more. Opportunities for growth as a musician are always close at hand. We
hope you'll consider joining us here at the SUNY Fredonia Trumpet Studio.
