    This syllabus is subject to revision based on the changing needs of the studio and individual students

    Course Objective:

    The objective of this course is to develop the trumpet students musical and technical prowess.

    Development of strong fundamentals and a hard work ethic will provide the cornerstone to every

    students success. Through weekly assignments of exercises, etudes, solos, and orchestral

    excerpts, student will gain the skills necessary to achieve their musical goals.

    Freshman Year (lower level 025: 054):

    The first year will focus on the development of strong fundamentals consisting of

    Technical Concepts: tone production, articulation, air efficiency

    Musical Development: phrasing, harmonic/melodic analysis, rhythm, begin transposition

    work

    Practice Routine: structure, efficiency, mental focus

    *Weekly assignments from (as applicable):

    Arban, Complete Method

    *Solo Repertoire:

    Hummel, Haydn, Kennan, Stevens, Clarke

    Scales:

    Begin routine of scale and arpeggio practice (major, minor, chromatic, and whole tone)

    Requirements:

    1. Perform at least 3 times per semester in weekly trumpet seminar with a minimum of one being accompanied

    2. Successful completion of fall and spring studio semester projects as outlined by Dr. Schendel

    3. Bring required lesson materials and notebook to every lesson 4. Attendance at mandatory events: trumpet guest artist events and student

    trumpet recitals

    5. Perform on the end of semester studio trumpet recital 6. Schedule 2 coaching sessions with your pianist and Dr. Schendel 1 month prior

    to your end of semester solo performances

    7. Proficiency Jury (see below for requirements):

    All applied undergraduate freshmen and sophomore trumpet students are required to play

    a proficiency jury at the end of each semester (4 semesters total). A proficiency jury is

    equivalent to a final exam and will showcase your semesters work. With successful

    completion of all four proficiency juries, the student will pass into upper level lessons

    beginning their junior year and will then play a regular jury until the year of their senior

    recital (see proficiency jury requirement sheet for details).

    Failure to perform a proficiency jury will result in a failing grade for that semester. The student must arrange for the jury material with an accompaniment to be heard at least

    twice in a lesson setting.

    A student is required to bring the following materials to the proficiency exam. Failure to

    do so will affect the students semester grade.

    1. One completed repertory sheet

    2. All materials and equipment borrowed from the instructor during the semester.

    Please reserve a time on the jury sign-up sheet that will be posted at least a week in

    advance each semester. Be sure to check with your accompanist ahead of time to find out

    their availability. All students taking private lessons are required to take a jury.

    *All repertoire listed in this curriculum (etudes, method books, and solos) is a partial sample of materials covered in

    this course. A wide scope of music will be addressed within the studio including a variety of arrangements,

    transcriptions, commercial, and jazz music.

    you have worked on throughout the semester, a sight reading example, and specifically

    designated scales, arpeggios, and excerpts. Transposition will be required the 3rd and or 4th

    semesters only. Parts that are not passed may be tried again in subsequent semesters, but all

    parts must be successfully completed by the end of sophomore year.

    Tips for learning and studying orchestral repertoire:

    1. Get the full trumpet part and score (all scores for the above repertoire are available in the music

    library)

    2. Identify and define all foreign musical terms

    3. Study the historical background for each piece (i.e. genre, when the piece was written,

    programmatic information, etc.)

    4. Listen to the entire piece and study how the trumpet part fits into the overall context

    5. Listen to a minimum of 4 different recordings of each piece

    6. Practice the trumpet part along with the orchestral recording of each piece

    structure, form, shape, and style) will be addressed as well.

    *Etudes:

    Continuation of Bousquet, Wurm, Brandt, Bordogni/Rochut, and Caffarelli studies. Add

    Charlier as well as other specialized studies depending on each students individual needs
