Trumpet Teacher Available
If anyone (on the Isle of Man) is interested in having some booster lessons when I am back home during the summer break, please get in touch with me to discuss.
I can help to develop high register playing and stamina as well as helping to improve general musicianship. Tuition is charged at an hourly rate of £20 (in accordance with UK Musician’s Union).
Russell is an up-and-coming young trumpet player with a special interest in period instruments. Now heading towards his fourth year at the Royal Northern College of Music, Russell studies modern trumpet with Tracey Redfern and John Miller and historical brass instruments with David Staff. He is also training to be a teacher in his studies at the RNCM.
As a soloist, Russell has performed recitals with both piano and organ and has given concerto performances with the Manx Youth Orchestra. He has also performed such works as Handel’s Messiah, with the Northern Freelance Orchestra and Manchester Baroque.
Russell has given numerous trumpet and organ recitals with fellow Manxman and RNCM graduate Gareth Moore. He has attended Dartington International Summer School, specialising in early brass and has a keen interest in the resurgence of the true natural trumpet. He has been involved in masterclasses by world-renowned brass players, such as Allen Vizzutti, Tristram Williams, Rod Franks, Christian Lindberg and Håkan Hardenberger.
