Hello! My name is Connor Landers, and I am a French Horn teacher! Based out of Rochester, NY, I am enlisted in the United States Army as a Bandsmen, in addition to pursuing a degree at the Eastman School of Music. In addition to studying with some of the all-time greats such as Bill VerMuelen and W. Peter Kurau, I have multiple years of experience teaching all levels of Horn players. As well as Orchestral and Wind Band expertise, I spent two years with the Madison Scouts Drum and Bugle Corps out of Madison, WI.

Performances with groups such as: The 198th Army Band, The New York State Ballet, The Grammy Award-Winning Eastman Wind Ensemble,The Eastman Symphony Orchestra, The Eastman Jazz Ensemble, The Sarasota Concert Band, and The Madison Scouts Drum and Bugle Corps.

In addition to performance, I am a composer/arranger, and have written music for Drum Corps International's Individual and Ensemble Competition, as well music performed on multiple collegiate-level recitals and concerts, including the Eastman Horn Choir!

My teaching philosophy is always on an individual basis, as playing the Horn is a different experience for everyone! There should never be a cookie-cutter way to learn how to create beautiful music, and I am willing to help you find what works best for you! Whether you are looking for help in the areas of sound development, technique, or audition preparation, I very much look forward to working with any level of student!

The method of success that has worked for myself, and many others is a methodical routine! No matter how busy your schedule is, you can expect to see week-to week improvements with a custom-tailored routine that I can help you create! If you are motivated and want to improve, I can help you achieve your goals!
