Trumpet

Patrick Lopez- Trumpet Player

Tremendous musicality, versatility and the ability to entertain everyone from the casual listener to the most discriminating improvised music aficionados. These qualities have become the trademark of multi-instrumentalist and entertainer Patrick Lopez. With performances that captivate and inspire his audiences, it’s obvious that he knows where music has been, where music is going, and perhaps most importantly, he’s not going to leave anyone behind on the journey.  His rhythmically charged trumpet solos, incredible piano enthusiasm having unique and spontaneous melodic fragments combined seamlessly with more traditional bebop runs show that he’s done his homework.  And it’s that intense dedication to music that has given him the opportunity to perform  with some incredible names in the world of music,  He’s had the opportunity to share the stage with Ira Sullivan, Felipe Lamoglia, Freddie Hubbard, Mark Colby, Melton Mustafa and Arturo Sandoval. Has recorded for Natalie Cole and numerous pop artists.

 

 

Serving all of WNC and Florida

As your trumpet teacher, I make it a point to have fun! While you may find many books on trumpet playing, this instrument can be really difficult to learn on your own. I have taught over 500 students including individuals in private sessions or and in a band setting. I have found that playing will advance at a faster rate by seeking a proper trumpet techniques such as breathing, fingering, and lip exercises.

 

 

At first, it will be easy just sit and talk about your love for the trumpet. When i started some time ago,the sound is what grabbed my attention. I truly believe a good sound plays a big role in your love for the trumpet.

Things to consider when studying the trumpet

Embouchure

Having a functioning embouchure is the key to success.Countless times I have encountered numerous students coming from bad habits ( too much pressure, closing their teeth, not enough support from bottom jaw) All this is vital for a healthy embouchure.

Technique

Like anything that requires tools to do something, Lungs to breathe, Teeth to chew, Technique is vital in being able to perform on this very complex and beautiful instrument. from fingerings, to proper placement of the fingers and left hand on the trumpet, these are things I cover in detail.

Attitude

Yes believe it or not a certain amount of a disciplined attitude is required in playing the trumpet. So many things now days are so easy to achieve that we forget that we constantly have to retrain a muscle to do its tasks.

Its sometimes really hard to get on a routine with so much of us having busy schedules but enjoy the process is my motto. In enjoying the process, the focus is on learning the craft and in due time you will see the benefits of your hard work!
