Welcome to the website of Bill Forman – trumpet soloist, pedagogue, orchestra trumpeter, natural trumpet player, specialist for contemporary music and consultant for brass players and composers. Forman's carreer combines many decades of pedagogy with extensive activity as a soloist and orchestral player, performer on the natural trumpet and at the forefront of contemporary music.


After 30 years as professor for trumpet at the Berlin Hochschule für Musik Hanns Eisler I am retiring this Spring. Of course my retirement won’t mean an end to my pedagogical and performing activity. Quite the contrary, I’ll be playing more in many different Ensembles and of course give lessons and consultations online. For the 2024/25 there are also master classes being planned.
