- Levels Taught:
- Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
I teach beginners, amateurs, and advanced students of all ages. Over the course of our lessons, you will not only learn how to become a better horn player, but also how to become a better musician. Musicianship topics that will be discussed are: etiquette, goal-setting, anxiety strategies, how to build a professional resume, and personal branding techniques. Every student receives a curated “horn book” that contains selected studies, warm-ups, a self-analysis, and a goal-setting worksheet.
I'm a professional horn player and educator from Canada with 15 years experience, and I'm a Professional Artist of Kelly Mouthpieces.
