The Master’s Series Presented by The White Lake Chamber Music Festival
Chicago Symphony Orchestra Trumpeter John Hagstrom – Success Strategies for Trumpet Players

Chicago Symphony Orchestra trumpeter John Hagstrom will share his advice for making better use of practice time. He has observed that lasting improvement happens when players first more honestly observe themselves–and then prescribe their own next steps. He will discuss how habits can be formed to more consistently build poise and confidence during concerts. Basic tone production fundamentals will be shared, as well as advice about how each player’s emotional intelligence can guide their physical and musical progress. It just so happens that this date (July 11th) precisely begins his 25th season in the CSO, and he will also look forward to answering any questions about the Orchestra and its many adventures!

The White Lake Chamber Music Festival is continues to present exceptional talent and world-class artists, even in the midst of every arts event cancelled. The Master’s Series is a collection of world-class musicians offering master classes, reaching musicians and music lovers world-wide! It is connecting those that are at the very top in their art with those who want to learn and grow. This is a unique, inspiring, and exciting way for many to connect with these masters, who normally would never have a chance to see them in an up close and personal way.
