How To Clean a Trumpet - Video Resource

The next time you find yourself needing to clean a trumpet, take a look at this video created with my son three years ago.

Why am I posting this resource here? It was created with iMovie (or Final Cut - I can’t remember). It was a fun learning experience to document and share the process step-by-step in a concise two-minute video with text and creative effects. We had a bit of fun making it too - as you’ll see! 😊

Please share with any young trumpeters or band teachers in your area.

Making me miss the smell of valve oil.

I remember cleaning so of the slide on my tuba (school owned) and it was pretty disgusting.

Haha! Glad you can recall the sights and smells. Swabbing out that leadpipe with a cleaning snake is always a cool/disgusting experience. 😜
