hours of work and daily dedication are required to stick with the material set and especially the prescribed methods of practising it.  Jeff knows where your playing-standard is at and knows the route of study needed to improve every aspect of your playing.  Further to this, Jeff’s encyclopaedic knowledge of all things trumpet and his unique collection of recorded lectures given by Claude Gordon provide the perfect support to your studies.</p> <p>I recommend you do your trumpet-playing a favour and get some lessons.  If you really care, get those lessons with Jeff Purtle.  There is nothing better in the World than playing the trumpet but Jeff’s advice, listened to and acted on, will genuinely maximise your results.</p></div> <div class="field field--name-field-media field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden field__item"> <img src="/sites/default/files/styles/media_library/public/images/david-bertie-jeff-purtle.jpeg?itok=wEuDhbQn" width="220" height="212" alt="David Bertie and Jeff Purtle" typeof="foaf:Image" class="image-style-media-library" /> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-name field--type-string field--label-hidden field__item">David Bertie</div> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-field-bio field--type-text-long field--label-hidden field__item"><p>Freelance Trumpeter<br /> Brass Teacher<br /> Wincanton, Somerset<br /> United Kingdom</p> </div> Tue, 07 Feb 2017 17:09:04 +0000 Jeff Purtle 15039 at https://www.purtle.com Hit it Hard & Wish it Well ebook with video trumpet lessons https://www.purtle.com/hit-it-hard-wish-it-well-ibooks-store-jeff-purtle <span property="schema:name" class="field field--name-title field--type-string field--label-hidden">Hit it Hard &amp;
