  "Life is something like a trumpet. If you don't put anything in, you won't get anything out."
William Christopher Handy

Dr. Schafer and Hannah on practicing and college

Audio of trumpet playing not necessarily an accurate representation of true sound

Lindsey Keys

Lindsey Keys


Lindsey Keys is in her third year as a music education major at UTC and would like to be a high school band director when she graduates.  Her passion for music education comes from her passion for marching band.  She loves the feeling after performing and playing music that connects with the audience.  While she used to play the clarinet, one day she picked up her dad’s trumpet and liked it so much she decided to switch.  Regarding her progress since she enrolled at UTC, she is most excited about learning how to play different styles of music.  Marching band and jazz band are the groups that have exposed her to the most diverse music.  She is also able to handle performance anxiety better; she now enjoys performing more as a soloist.
