Trumpet Studio

The Trumpet Studio at Southern Miss is comprised of students who are energetic and dedicated to achieving success. Our goal is to become a studio of not only great trumpet players, but also great people. We seek a team atmosphere that fosters growth and success.
 
Our students are fortunate to have many performing experiences at Southern Miss. Students can participate in the University Bands, Southern Miss Symphony Orchestra, The Pride of Mississippi Marching Band, Jazz Lab Bands, Chamber Music Ensembles and Trumpet Ensembles, including our nationally-recognized Advanced Trumpet Ensemble. With these varied performing groups, our students can become proficient in a vast number of performing genres. We also host an annual Trumpet Festival which features world-renowned guest artists, most recently John Daversa (international jazz artist) and Mark Clodfelter (international soloist) and invites participants from the entire region to participate.
