Hacklmusic Trumpet Lessons & Setup Optimization
About this pro
professional trumpet player & maker - developed over the past 26 years my own technique and teaching methodology how to play brass instruments the most efficient way. The lip is the sound source which creates a standing airwave within the instrument and the trumpet functions as a filter and amplifier. I also developed a special tongue technique which requires less movement when phrasing notes ( single, double and triple tongue) and therefore is faster, requires less effort, is very versatile, usable in any style of music and is much more accurate in hitting the notes. If you understand these two aspects and are able to implement them you perform better with practicing less. I cover all aspects of trumpet playing ( technique, breathing, posture, embochoure, equipment, phrasing, sight reading, improvisation, high range, endurance, sound quality, repertoire etc.). I'm teaching in an acoustically calibrated trumpet studio & offer professional recording services to my students. This is a great teaching and career tool for listening back and putting demos together. I'm an award winning international touring artist and clinician (US, Austria, Brazil, Germany, Tunisia, Indonesia, Finland, Poland, Italy etc.), hand crafting innovative horns & accessories, artistic director and founder of the Outreach Music Festival & Academy (established 1993), alumnus of the Conservatory of the City of Vienna (Austria) & Manhattan School of Music (Masters Degree) I love it that my system works very well for all levels and age groups. Currently my youngest student is 8 years old and my oldest one is 76. They are an inspiring mixture of beginners, music majors, comeback players, intermediate players, professionals, music teachers, members of brass bands, elementary - middle and high school students. I find it very exciting developing the best individual practice methods for each trumpet player based on his/her experience, talent, style of music, practice time available & short and long term goals. I also enjoy very much advising and custom fitting the perfect equipment setup so it works perfectly with your playing style. It's all about the music and the more efficient you play the horn the more you can focus on the music. I enjoy the challenges and inspiring experience being a part of your journey becoming the best musician you can be.

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I offer many different packages and pricing also depends on if the customer comes to my trumpet studio ( I'm teaching in an acoustically calibrated room) or if I teach at the customer's house or online. It's best to request a quote on an individual basis.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?First I ask the customer what he/she wants to achieve in terms of short and long term goals. Then I analyze the body language and level of playing and develop with the customer together an optimized practice routine taking into account how much practice time he/she can invest. The goal is to play the most efficient way and to become your own teacher. This will guarantee constant improvement. I also can be helpful finding or adjusting the equipment so it serves best the preferred playing style. If my customers play on a professional level I will recommend them for gigs as well. I also if this is wanted will incorporate apps and computer programs in my teaching. This can be of great additional benefit.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I graduated from the Conservatory of the City of Vienna in Austria and have a Masters Degree from the Manhattan School of Music in NYC both as a trumpet major. I'm a professional brass instrument maker and did learn my trade at my family owned business in Austria. I own a US patent for a brass instrument mouthpiece system and designed or co-designed several trumpet and flügelhorn models ( Hybrass which is half brass and half wood) and trumpet accessories ( Defkexxbrass an acoustic monitoring system). Since 1993 I run the Outreach Music Academy.
