In my experience, finding a connection between the students natural learning style (incl. musical interests) and the trumpet is sure way to develop strong motivation for practice and growth.
Explaining how the trumpet works and supplementing that knowledge with all sorts of metaphors and visualizations, helps the learner get closer to the instrument and willing to tackle challenges.
A healthy listening diet of all genres and types of trumpet playing is also very useful, as is a mixture of fun ear training and reading exercises.
I also encourage my students to come up with their own melodies with the musical material they have learned at their respective level of experience. This applies to improvisation, be it jazz or other.
Learning by imitation is never underestimated and I always play my trumpet in the lessons.
I have a BA and MA from The Royal Conservatory at the University of Arts in The Hague, The Netherlands. My principal teacher were Erik Vloeimans and Jarmo Hoogendijk. The main study area was jazz trumpet (with minor in classical) for the bachelor studies and leading and guiding in collaborative composition for master studies.
Leading and Guiding - creative music making workshops. Trained by and collaborated with Guildhall School of Music London faculty. More than 5 years of experience with all ages, music learners, university students, professionals, troubled youth, recovering patients, etc.
