Jazzschool-Online Technical Notes All Jazzschool-Online classes meet online via Zoom. Technical requirements include: computer, tablet or phone with a reliable internet connection. Computer (laptop or desktop) is preferred, but a tablet or phone is also possible, with somewhat limited functionality. Optional for improved sound quality: external microphone, either connected via USB or XLR cable to audio interface. For a budget USB mic option, we recommend the Samson Go, currently retailing for around $50 new. Additional technical requirements are listed for specific classes below.

Trumpet Techniques NEW!The noble trumpet lives!

All levels of trumpet players are welcome; adults and young adults only (ages 15 and up). Each participant will receive a free digital copy of Dave’s publication “Jazz Standards Made Etudes for Trumpet,” along with free accompanying mp3 backing tracks. Each week, between classes, trumpet students will be asked to record themselves on their smartphones or similar camera-enabled device, performing selected pieces.
