Staying Balanced – Find your median and stay on it

Practice Window Training™

Community Counts

Practice Window Training™

Practice Windows are 5-minute videos recorded during a practice session. The idea is to capture a short clip of how you actually practice – it is not a performance. Practice Window Training™ is a 20-minute lesson, watching the Practice Window together, to create a more efficient, productive, and satisfying practice experience.

T5

Everything is connected

Ben Wright started T5 on the belief that everyone can benefit from a smarter, more holistic approach to music training. Developing independent thinking, physical efficiency, problem solving, and a greater sense of confidence playing the trumpet are the basis for everything T5 does. 

Work With Me

Testimonials

Ben’s teaching made me see the importance of playing longer lines and being more organized. Hearing him in person and in the orchestra was always inspiring. My playing wouldn’t be where it is today if I hadn’t studied with him.

Elmer Churampi

Dallas Symphony and NEC BM '18

Studying with Ben was one of the best things that happened to me for my trumpet playing… Hearing Ben, not only in lessons, but on stage with the BSO every week, was enormously beneficial for my later success. I wouldn’t be where I am today without my time studying with him.

Travis Peterson

Principal Trumpet - The Utah Symphony

Ben’s approach of singing to save chop time and focus on the music was really beneficial to me. His focus on being mentally and physically balanced was one of the keys to my success in winning auditions. Years after I studied with Ben, he was a pillar of support when I needed his it most – his advice helped me bounce back from a challenging time in my career and move forward.

Mike Myers

Trumpet, Seattle Symphony

“Ben has been an incredible mentor and teacher for me, and I can’t thank him enough for all the invaluable lessons he has given me in music and beyond…. The perspective he provided was just the right push at just the right time to allow me to be happy and successful here and now.
