  • Michael Loader

    Michael Loader

    Trumpet Teacher

    Hello my name is Michael Loader and I've been playing trumpet since I was 10, from which I had the opportunity to travel to France, Germany and Canada with bands and orchestras until I was 16.
    As well as playing and teaching trumpet I am a storyteller working with people of all ages after qualifying with a B Ed Hons teaching degree.
    My approach to teaching is to find out what the student wants, from getting a good sound (which takes patience and practise), playing tunes to scales, from improvising to playing by ear - where 'enjoyment' takes priority.
    After taking a break from trumpet to concentrate on being a husband, dad and my storytelling career I got back into trumpet through jumping into Jazz - fulfilling a teenage ambition - and now play funk, soul and groove with Locked Horns.
    I still thank my Dad for giving me the chance to play; music is a special place to be.
