I am currently serving as Assistant Professor of Brass at Mount Allison University. An accomplished international chamber musician, I have performed with Volante Winds at the prestigious Fischoff Chamber Music Competition as well as being featured the Juneau Jazz and Classics Festival and the Jeju International Wind Ensemble Festival. Volante Winds has also toured extensively throughout the United States giving concerts and masterclasses at various colleges and Universities. I have also performed in Europe as part of the Festival Internacional de Música Clásica in Vilagarcia Spain. 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.
About Olivier H.

I am Assistant Professor of Applied Brass at Mount Allison University, and have been teaching online horn lessons since 2015, helping multiple students get into Universities as music majors. I have experience teaching students ages 9-75 and I emphasize practical advice to help them improve and reach their horn playing goals. I also received my Doctorate in Horn Performance at the prestigious Jacobs School of Music at Indiana University. An accomplished international chamber musician, I have performed with Volante Winds at the prestigious Fischoff Chamber Music Competition as well as being featured the Juneau Jazz and Classics Festival and the Jeju International Wind Ensemble Festival. Volante Winds has also toured extensively throughout the United States giving concerts and masterclasses at various colleges and Universities. I have also performed in Europe as part of the Festival Internacional de Música Clásica in Vilagarcia Spain. I have performed with the Charlottetown Festival Orchestra, Symphony New Brunswick, Owensboro Symphony, Dubuque Symphony, American Youth Symphony, Columbus Philharmonic and Redlands Symphony as well as being a finalist for Macau Symphony and semi-finalist for New World Symphony. My performance experience includes playing in sections with legendary performers such as 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 simply trying to sound as beautiful as possible I will help you achieve your goals. I focus on beauty of sound and engaged music making and as a result my students have received full scholarships to study horn performance as well as won places in the Chicago Youth Symphony, Sacramento Youth Symphony, Roanoke Youth Symphony and Superior Ratings at the NYSSMA State Solo Competition. 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.

I have been taking lessons with Olivier for 18 months now, and have made a lot of progress in french horn with him. Olivier is patient, knowledgable and is willing to tell you about many fun facts about music. Learning with Olivier is fun and exciting. I highly recommend Olivier as a french horn teacher. ~Ben
