The KSU Trumpet Studio has a tradition of excellence in education, performance and a rich history of academic and professional success after graduation. Throughout the country, alumni from our program teach at all levels: early music education through higher education professorships. Current students perform and compete at regarded events that include The National Trumpet Competition and The Kansas Music Educators Association among others. Through personalized goal-oriented studies and numerous diverse performance opportunities, each student at K-State is guided in developing artistic and leadership skills toward their forthcoming careers. The KSU Trumpet Studio is a positive and supportive community, and our unique perspectives and experiences combine to create an inclusive atmosphere. These traditions continue to be developed under the leadership of Dr. John Kilgore, Instructor of Trumpet.
