From humble beginnings

A small music store with a repair shop grows into one of the world’s most well-known instrument manufacturers. Powered by an irrepressible passion for music and a belief in uncompromising quality, Musikhaus Schagerl, in Lower-Austria, Hörsdorf bei Mank, in the district of Melk, has maintained the same company motto for three generations: “In Quality We Trust!”

For more than half a century, and now in its second generation, the Schagerl has grown its beginnings as a local music retailer with a repair workshop, into one of the most famous instrument manufacturers in the world.

James Morrison Trumpets

James Morrison is a virtuoso in the true sense of the word. Besides the trumpet, this multi-instrumentalist also plays piano, all the brass, saxophones, and double bass. James was also the artistic advisor to the Sydney Symphony’s “Kaleidoscope” series, which has included performances by Chick Corea, Dianne Reeves, Gary Burton and Kristjan Jarvi.

Recognised for his service to the arts in Australia, James was awarded a medal of The Order of Australia by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, with particular mention of his contribution to music education. He is a Doctor of the University at Queensland Conservatorium of Music and has received a Doctor of Music from the Edith Cowan University Western Australia. He is also an Adjunct Professor at the University of South Australia and Vice-Chancellor’s Professorial Fellow.

The latest chapter in his diverse career sees James in Mount Gambier, South Australia, establishing the James Morrison Academy of Music, an innovative school dedicated to teaching jazz and offering an Associate Degree in Music. This exciting initiative involves educators from all over the world, transforming young musicians’ lives with inspiration and a love of jazz.
