When you study trumpet at CIM, you’re considered a young professional. That means we’ll support and challenge you to reach your full artistic potential as a teacher and performer.
As a trumpet student you’ll be part of a department that’s designed to maintain a carefully balanced enrollment, which provides multiple opportunities to perform solo, chamber, orchestral, operatic and new music repertoire. Orchestral participation is virtually continuous. You’ll also undergo extensive preparation in the brass orchestral repertoire class conducted by your department head, Michael Sachs, principal trumpet of The Cleveland Orchestra.
All trumpet majors also participate in weekly trumpet studio class, where you'll perform for and interact with all our trumpet faculty.
