Trumpet Practice with Antoine Drye

Developing an efficient practice routine is one of the most important aspects of being a successful trumpet player. Top NYC trumpeter Antoine Drye explains different approaches that you can use to practicing and warming up while at the same time building your musical knowledge and vocabulary. In a casual and jazzy conversation, Antoine discusses different warm-up techniques, such as warming up with a song, playing with a soft dynamic and practicing chord tones from different progressions. In the end of the course, Antoine Drye is joined by Lessonface teacher and bassist Flavio Lira for a jam over three different songs.
