School of Music

Trumpet Studio

Welcome to the USC Trumpet Studio

The USC trumpet studio provides its students with excellent training and the necessary expertise which are fundamental for a successful career in music. Our graduates have gone on to pursue graduate degrees at well-known Universities and Conservatories, careers in music education, freelancers in various cities around the world and members of symphony orchestras and top military bands.

The School of Music boasts facilities that are numerous and give ample rehearsal space for ensembles, individual practice and study preparation. The concert and recital halls are particularly stunning and the music library is also very impressive!  A new recital hall is presently (2012) being built for future use.

On what to expect to study in the studio, please see the Applied Trumpet page. If you are a guest, please visit the About US page where you can find further links concerning the university. You can also visit the FAQ's page for frequently asked questions. If you are wondering what is happening in the studio, please visit the Studio Calendar. If you have any further questions or would like to visit, please feel free to contact Professor Ackley.

Thanks for visiting our site and I hope to see you at an audition or a concert very soon!
