Olivier H.

Bloomington, IN

About Olivier

My name is Olivier H. I am a horn player who received my MM in Horn Performance from Indiana University and am currently working on my DM. I have performed with Redlands Symphony Orchestra and Columbus Philharmonic as well as being a finalist for Macau Symphony and semi-finalist for New World Symphony. I have also performed in sections with Dale Clevenger, Jeff Nelsen and Elizabeth Freimuth. My teaching style relies on simplifying breathing and focusing on achieving the best possible musical results. I take into account each student's goals and desires and tailor lessons to get the end result
they want. I have worked with many beginning students as well so whether your goal is an upcoming school or ensemble audition or just trying to sound as beautiful as possible I will help you achieve your goals.
I also have a minor in music theory as well as years of theory tutor experience ranging from teaching how to read music notation to Schenkerian analysis.

Fantastic instructor. There are not sufficient superlatives to describe his musicianship, patience, dedication, commitment, and ability to share his enthusiasm for this wonderful instrument. I doubted the efficacy of online lessons, but was sold from the start, all due to Oliver! I cannot recommend him enough!

Best class ever! Even better than class face to face. Olivier made the connection with 13 years old. We are very lucky to find him.

Sara C.

Bloomington, IN

About Sara

Hi! My name is Sara. My studio began in 2000, teaching one violin student. I took a break and went to college to earn my A.A. in Music and my Piano Performance Certificate from Riverside Community College in California. I graduated Great Distinction and was on the Dean's list. I received many piano and academic scholarships. While in college I started my studio in Riverside California teaching Piano to an autistic child. I taught him 3 times a week and made exceptional progress. I enjoyed it so much I started teaching full time in 2008 teaching piano, harp, violin, voice, guitar, flute and cla
rinet. Soon I had 50 students and created a 501 (c) (3) non-profit music school. My students and I perform for the public, including nursing homes. The performances are important for the students progress as well as the Piano Guild where students are adjudicated by judges in a non competitive environment. Moving back to my hometown, I am excited to meet new students!
