Trumpet was recognised as a Suzuki instrument by the International Suzuki Association (ISA) in October 2011.
In Norway, Suzuki Violin Teacher Anne-Berit Halvorsen worked with Brass Teachers on a Suzuki inspired method for Brass under the name Rett på musikken. It was because of this work that the development of the Trumpet as a Suzuki instrument started and the European Suzuki Association formally defined the Trumpet as a development project.
The project leader for Suzuki Trumpet has been the Trumpet player and Brass Teacher Ann-Marie Sundberg in Sweden. Ann-Marie works as a Brass Teacher at the Nacka Music School in Sweden and Brass Teacher Trainer at the Royal College of Music in Stockholm.
Ann-Marie started teaching Trumpet to a group of 4 year olds in 2007. This group has been her ”laboratory” for the development of the Trumpet method and the work has now come to the point that the material for Suzuki Trumpet Book 1 is ready for publication. The publishers of Suzuki core material, Alfred Publications in the USA, are currently processing the material and hopefully the book and CD can be published soon.
Since the development of new instrument areas for the Suzuki Method™ is done by the ISA, the continuation of this work will be supervised by the ISA and its Instrument Committee for the Trumpet.
