About Jeffrey H.

Hi, I'm an award-winning composer and musician. I compose music for film, animation, musical theater, and jazz combo. My main instrument is the French Horn but I can teach most brass instruments. I play classical and jazz music on the French Horn. I'm a graduate of The Juilliard School and The Cleveland Institute of Music. My love of music spans many genres including classical, jazz, rock, RnB, and World Music.

As a lifelong learner, I'm invested in my own study of music theory/harmony, orchestration and arranging and I'm always excited to share with my students what I have learned in music in an effort to help them create their unique musical voice.

Jeffrey Weeks Harrison is a composer of music in various genres from classical, rock, world music, funk, to jazz. Originally from New Orleans, he lives in New York City with his wife Katie, and dog Simba after working in Africa for the past 11 years. Many years of performing with symphony orchestras have shaped Jeff’s compositional style, tonal palette, as well as his abilities to orchestrate and arrange music for a wide spectrum of instruments and for themes that range from simple to multi-layered and complex. As a performing classical and jazz musician, Jeff possesses a unique sensibility for orchestrations and arrangements, and a passion for innovation and improvisation. Jeff is dedicated to the discovery of innovative harmonies and melodic motifs through the regular study of music theory. He encourages his students to study music harmony and theory and to develop their unique sound. His musical voice is highly expressive, distinctive, and communicates a transcendent quality, painting pictures in the imaginations of listeners. Assisting his students in developing their Unique Musical Voices is at the Core of his musical philosophy and music lessons approach. A graduate of The Juilliard School (MM) and The Cleveland Institute of Music (BM), he performs regularly with orchestras and local jazz ensembles on the French Horn.
