Trumpet Instruction

Students enrolled for trumpet instruction study privately with a full-time teacher each week. No part-time or graduate student instructors are presently employed for this purpose, assuring that each student's instructor will be a teacher with extensive performance and teaching credentials. Trumpet Class and Brass Seminar meet each week, and guest artists are often presented in recitals and clinics. The Trumpet Studio at UNI is a good place to be! In recent years, we have had students from Minnesota, Wisconsin, Illinois, Nebraska, Missouri, Kansas, and Texas in addition to the many talented students from all over Iowa.
