At JAM MUSIC LAB the team of teachers specialised in trumpet performance comprises of Thomas Gansch, Daniel Nösig and Aneel Soomary. With their expertise they offer students a holistic approach, while always maintaining an awareness of the current professional realities: diversity of styles, technique and the possibility for students to individually specialise lie at the centre of the learning experience.
