Besides just using this website as a portal for discovering accomplished trumpet players to listen to, Mr. Lewis also schedules specific listening assignments here as a way to introduce you to music or musicians you may never have heard before. The links below each take you to a page with a video that was scheduled for your trumpet lesson listening assignment.
We encourage you to listen to the week’s assignments before your lesson. If you have any questions or comments afterwards, in your trumpet lesson, then we encourage you to bring it up. Remember, listening is more important than practicing. So talking about what you have been listening to is a legitimate part of your trumpet lessons.
We are also including Eddie Lewis’ Spotlights and Student Spotlights on this page. These are recordings of Mr. Lewis and his students. The reason we share these with you is so you become more familiar with the end results associated with what you are learning in your lessons, which we feel is very important.

Here's a composition of mine that I wrote based on my own melody for "This is the day the Lord has made, I will rejoice and be glad in it." The piece is rooted in salsa rhythms but is to be performed as a classical work.

The Tartini trumpet concerto is one of the more "fun" baroque concerti in our repertoire. Here is Gábor Tarkövi performing it skillfully and musically. Tarkövi is principal trumpet of the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra.
