Eastman Trumpet Online Workshop
August 2-7, 2020 / Monday–Friday, times TBA

Faculty: Douglas Prosser, Wesley Nance
Guest faculty: Christopher Smith, Principal Trumpet, San Diego Symphony

Addressing the various needs of today’s collegiate and high school players, the Eastman Summer Trumpet Online Seminar is a fun-filled, highly motivating five-day online experience hosted by Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra musicians Douglas Prosser and Wesley Nance, featuring San Diego Symphony Principal Trumpet Christopher Smith. Students who register as performers will submit daily recordings for online masterclasses with real-time critique and discussion over Zoom with the group. Instructors will present online topical sessions daily, such as warm-up, practice strategies, technique, interpretation, etc. Students will participate in online college or orchestral mock auditions, and get feedback from the instructors who are actual people involved in making those decisions at Eastman and professional orchestras. Students will explore ways to develop successful mental attitudes, styles and techniques for great recital performances, orchestral playing and audition success. Finally, we will have a topical seminar on successful recording technique and produce a virtual trumpet ensemble video together to be released on the final Friday. Dust your trumpet off, get back in shape, and join us as we explore the challenges and excitement of playing this fantastic instrument!

This workshop is also available to auditors who will have access to two special topic presentations per day.

Limited to 21 performers (no auditor limit).

Performers: $350 / noncredit     CRN 36998
Auditors: $100     CRN 37004
