About ten students under the instruction of SFCM's esteemed faculty professors, including principal players from the San Francisco Symphony and San Francisco Opera and Ballet orchestras, make up SFCM's trumpet department. You'll have opportunities to perform with resident ensembles such as the Conservatory Orchestra and chamber groups, with emphasis on both contemporary and classical music, and to enter an annual brass concerto competition.
