Phill O'Neill

Trumpeter

Welcome

Hi and welcome to my blog. Here I'll be talking about all things trumpet related. I believe we are all continuously learning to master the craft of playing the trumpet and hence please look at this blog as simply sharing some of my thoughts on this with you all. I have left comments open for you to share your thoughts also. Please remember to be polite and respectful. 

In coming posts I will draw on my experience mostly from Service bands, Big bands, Top 40 covers bands, Brass Bands, Brass Ensembles, Orchestras, Brass Quintets and as a soloist.  Being a trumpet player is far more involved than just sticking to one genre. 

Here I will talk about how I approach being a versatile musician and how I prepare for each role. I'd love to hear your thoughts and experiences too.

Thanks for checking out my blog and happy practicing.
