Frank Anepool Demonstrates the Natural Trumpet

This is wonderful close up video of Frank Anepool demonstrating the type of natural trumpet that was used in Handel’s Messiah. Much of it is in German, but take a look at how he is using the holes to get different notes.

If you have any questions about how these trumpets work, please feel free to ask me about it in your next lesson.

Eddie Lewis posts these videos as listening assignments to his students. He often tells the students that “listening is more important than practicing”. To that end, he shares the videos so the students have something to inspire them to listen more often to professional trumpet players.

That said, if you are not one of Mr. Lewis’ students, we welcome you, too. The more the merrier! Welcome to Feel free to post your comments and questions below.
