A master teacher, his former teachers include Joseph Alessi Sr., Bill Adam, James Stamp, and Gilbert Johnson. Bert has held professorships at SMU, UNT, Texas A&M Commerce, as well as maintaining a successful private studio. For 6 summers he has hosted a week-long trumpet camp in Dallas, TX, that has featured such trumpet greats as Philip Smith, Ryan Anthony, Marvin Stamm, and Jon Lewis.

"The Truax mouthpiece is ideal for players with braces. The unique acrylic top makes it easier to buzz, and it's light weight allows for less pressure. This design of a full acrylic top also means there is no metal conflicting with the metal of the braces. They are also less expensive, and just as effective as other professional grade mouthpieces costing much more."
The Bert Truax model is available in a 1.5, 3, 5, and 7 rim sizes, all with a 27 throat and open backbore.
