The History of the Trumpet - Wynton Marsalis

In this unique DVD, Wynton traces the history of the Trumpet from the early examples of a Conch Shell and Ram’s Horn, to today’s modern orchestral and jazz instruments. He explains how the construction of the Trumpet has changed over time, and demonstrates those changes by playing and talking about different historical instruments and their respective historical eras.

In addition to this entertaining and interesting historical review, Wynton includes two bonus sections specifically for the trumpet player and musician.
“Essential Tips for Getting Your Sound”, and “From The Beginning”, give the player unique insight from this excellent educator, Pulitzer Prize Winner, and superb musician to bring into your own sound every day ! These are programs that everyone interested in the Trumpet or how to play it should have in their collection!
