All-State Workshop

Sunday, January 3, 2016

Need extra assistance on your required All-State solo? Want some more input? Do you need extra courage or inspiration?  Or do you just need to play it live before the big audition day? Then this workshop is designed for you!  Come join us.

The USC Trumpet Studio's All-State Workshop allows you the opportunity to learn more about your solo so you can go into the audition with confidence. From master classes, a recital, and instruments to try out, all in one day! This workshop is designed to give you instruction, inspiration and confidence going into that audition! Come join us! (All parents/teachers are welcome to stay for the day with their child/student, free of cost).

Our annual workshop has become extremely popular, benefitting many students in their quest for a better audition experience and further development of their instrument.  The 2015 workshop had more than 70 participants and many enjoyed the recital, one-on-one instruction,  playing the professional instruments in the exhibition area, and the social "hang" with other trumpet enthusiasts from all over the state.  Please join us, we would love to have you with us!
