DustDevil Trumpet Academy

Attention trumpeters, Dust Devil Trumpet Academy's now open! Master trumpet classes will be taught to Middle School students. Join us for our 1st Dust Devil Trumpet Academy. This Music Master functions in partnership with TAMIU Continuing Education and the Laredo area public schools to provide middle school trumpeters with an opportunity to refine their fundamental skills on the instrument. It will be offered as part of our personal enrichment series at TAMIU this Spring. Class will be led by TAMIU's Adjunct Professor of Trumpet, Nicole Gillotti.

Ms. Gillotti received her Bachelor of Science in Music Education degree at University of Pennsylvania and her Master of Music Degree in Trumpet Performance from Illinois State University. She is currently pursuing a Doctorate in Musical Arts degree in Trumpet Performance and Literature at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Nicole is a native of Reading, Pennsylvania and discovered her passion of the trumpet and music during High School. She has participated in the National Trumpet Competition as a semi-finalist in both undergraduate and graduate solo divisions. She is excited to share her passion and knowledge of the trumpet with the Laredo students.

Students will get to reinforce concepts discussed in band including posture, proper breathing, and technical skills specific to the trumpet. Class will meet with the instructor in a group setting for eight Saturday sessions to cover these fundamental skills, play with one another in an ensemble setting and further prepare repertoire for various TMEA and UIL competitions awhile gaining confidence in their performance skills.
