Private Lesson With Trumpeter Lynn Nicholson
Enjoy a private lesson with Lynn Nicholson. (This may be online)

Details: Lynn Nicholson of Las Vegas continues to give trumpet lessons to those genuinely interested in acquiring an extraordinary upper register. To be clear, the trumpet lessons will deal only with the physical aspects of trumpet performance. Maynard Ferguson from the 1950s will be the benchmark for sound and range. The instruction will be very intense. Lynn will assess your playing apparatus and show you how to optimize it for maximum range and endurance. In addition, Lynn will demonstrate the concepts and show you how to incorporate them safely into your playing schedule. Much of what Lynn will show you is likely opposite to what you have learned thus far, so you will need a very open mind. Lynn recommends 2 hours for the lesson, sinc you will be covering lots of ground.
