I focus on beauty of sound and engaged music making and as a result my students have won places in the Chicago Youth Symphony, Sacramento Youth Symphony, Roanoke Youth Symphony and Superior Ratings at the NYSSMA State Solo Competition.

My son has had Oliver as an instructor since Jan 2020. He has been excellent!

Oliver has been great at teaching my son technical improvements for better french horn sound.

Moreover, I set up an University professor friend of mine to talk to Oliver to learn how to do online music lessons.

He's been great!!

Great first lesson! Olivier was very patient and knew how to work with our beginner on the French Horn to get him to start off on the right foot! Looking forward to many more great lessons!

Olivier was great to work with. Olivier was very helpful with being able to hear and correct issues that my son was having with his horn. My son was comfortable with taking lessons and enjoyed the lesson times. I recommend Olivier.

We signed up when our local instructor moved and no others in town were accepting new students. For context, our high schooler has been playing french horn for 5 years, and has primarily been preparing for district/state solo contests this semester.

Oliver is great. He has provided helpful instruction, advice about performance nerves, and has been super-flexible in scheduling.

Honestly, we were initially a little skeptical of online lessons. It took a few weeks to get into a routine, but now they are working out quite well. An advantage to the online format has been how easy it is to re-schedule when we have one-off conflicts, and it's actually kind of nice having lessons in your own home.

In a perfect world, we would love to take lessons from Oliver in-person!

Olivier has without a doubt helped my daughter improve in ways that I (as a former French Horn player) could not. He is patient and pleasant as well as intelligent. Most importantly he has given my daughter the necessary tools she's needed. He doesn't just say "play higher" or "do it again". Instead he tells her exactly HOW she can get better and exactly WHAT techniques she needs to do to improve. I have seen a noticeable difference in 8 lessons and look forward her future success with Olivier.

Our son has been taking Horn lessons from Mr. Olivier for a year and a half (our son has only been playing horn for that amount of time) and loves it. Olivier doesn't just teach notes, he always takes care to foster musicality in our son. He has supported and helped our son prepare for All-Districts and Youth Symphony auditions where our son has secured first chair in both. We truly believe our son would not be this successful without Mr. Olivier's guidance. If you are interested in growing musically while mastering this beautiful instrument, he is the teacher for you! Always finding new pieces, and warm-up exercises to keep our son excited! Thank you Mr. Olivier

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.
