My name is Olivier Huebscher. I am a horn player who received my Masters in Horn Performance from Indiana University and am currently working on my Doctorate. I was born in Switzerland in 1989, and have performed in wide variety of cultures and venues, from television soundtrack recording in Thailand, to full opera productions. I am equally comfortable performing in studio recordings, opera pits or symphonic stages. In addition to being a member of Santa Monica Symphony, American Youth Symphony, Columbus Philharmonic and Redlands Symphony, I am a dedicated chamber musician, performing with Volante Winds as well as recording Mahler’s Symphony No 9 with the Kammermahler ensemble.
I have performed with American Youth Symphony, Redlands Symphony Orchestra and Columbus Philharmonic as well as being a finalist for Macau Symphony and semi-finalist for New World Symphony. I have also performed in sections with Dale Clevenger, Jeff Nelsen and Elizabeth Freimuth. My teaching style relies on simplifying breathing and focusing on achieving the best possible musical results. I take into account each student's goals and desires and tailor lessons to get the end result they want. I have worked with many beginning students as well so whether your goal is an upcoming school or ensemble audition or just trying to sound as beautiful as possible I will help you achieve your goals.
I also have a minor in music theory as well as years of theory tutor experience ranging from teaching how to read music notation to Schenkerian analysis.

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.
