I've earned my Bachelor of Music degree from the University of Wisconsin Green Bay with a major in Instrumental and General Music and a minor in education.  I am a K-12th grade licensed music teacher in Wisconsin living and teaching in the Western Wisconsin area and I've taught music for 10 years in a variety of K-12th grade settings including: elementary & middle school general music, middle & high school band, middle and high school musicals and a variety of private music lessons for school aged & adult students.
There isn't homework assigned for this lesson.
A trumpet, including the mouthpiece : )
One example of a tone quality rubric.

Mr. Schafer's 
Tone Quality Rubric

4= Tone is consistently focused, clear, and centered throughout the range of the instrument. Tone has professional quality.	

3 = Tone is focused, clear and centered through the normal playing range of the instrument. Extremes in range sometimes cause tone to be less controlled. Tone quality typically does not detract from the performance.	

2 = Tone is often focused, clear and centered, but sometimes the tone is uncontrolled in the normal playing range. Extremes in range are usually uncontrolled. Occasionally the tone quality detracts from overall performance.	

1 = The tone is often not focused, clear or centered regardless of the range being played, significantly detracting from the overall performance.
30 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
I will share a Google Slide as part of the lesson where I will go over the basics of music theory like: measure, bar line, treble clef notes, etc.
