Throughout my entire college career, I had ample opportunities to conduct small and large ensembles (both wind ensemble and orchestra) which all stemmed from my experience as the Drum Major at my high school alma mater. During my undergrad, I primarily studied wind conducting with Professor Jack Williamson, where I received daily feedback on contrasting styles and ideas in a live conducting situation.

Score study led me to excel at Indiana University, especially in the music theory department. When I teach conducting, I treat it like the conductor is "playing" the ensemble, similar to how a pianist knows right where and how to touch the keys. The student and I go through different scenarios-styles, approaches, eye contact, and how to balance reading a score while cuing individuals.

About Annie B.

Hi there! My name is Annie. I am an active performer, and educator based in Iowa City, IA. I hold a Master’s degree in Horn Performance, with an Early Music Minor, at Indiana University Jacobs School of Music. Currently, I’m performing in local brass quintet ensembles, giving masterclasses at University of Iowa, teaching private students in horn, and other wind instruments. I have experience teaching all ages, levels, and aspirations in general music, band music, and orchestral settings. When I'm not teaching, I'm trying new recipes, hiking with my husband, reading, or brewing a cup of Oolong tea.

"Annie gave our (University of Iowa) a terrific hour-long presentation on the history and technique of the natural horn. It was excellent, engaging, and informative in every respect, a demonstration of the skill and knowledge of a real professional. The students greatly profited from her expertise, and I am plotting to have her back soon to teach us more. She is a wonderful player and teacher!”

We hired Annie to teach private French Horn lessons to our daughter after the school year was cut short due to the pandemic. After just a month of lessons, she was playing with more confidence, enthusiastic about practicing(!), and expressing pride in her progress. Annie has excellent communication skills, is a natural at teaching kids even in the virtual (via Zoom) environment, and takes a sincere interest in her students’ development and overall well-being. Best money we’ve spent on music yet!
