EXCEPTION: The 8 Week Lead Trumpet Course ONLY applies to Trumpet.
Although this Course Can Be Taken By Very Young Players or Inexperienced Adults, There Are Some Minimum Requirements:
If you are a student and under 18 years of age, you need to have had at least one year of experience in band or private lessons.
So, If you are 12 years old and in 6th grade band, but started in 5th grade, you would qualify!
If you are an adult over 18 years of age, you need to have had at least 6 months of private lessons or a similar experience in a playing ensemble.
So, If you are 38 years old and got a trumpet or other brass instrument 6 months ago and have been taking private lessons, you would qualify!
The above minimums are important because this is not a course for pure beginners who have never touched an instrument or been in band.
