Lesson Details

French Horn

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
Playing the horn has been a life long passion of mine and has been both rewarding and demanding. It has kept me on the road and enabled me to meet wonderful people from all walks of life as well as great musicians and artists who have been truly inspiring. They have strengthened my belief in a close knit world wide family of generous and creative human beings striving to change the world for the better. As a performer and a teacher, I am involved in numerous projects with young musicians and artists, and I would love to share the knowledge I've learned from my teachers, and experience as performer with music lovers at any level, from beginner to the advanced student.

Playing the horn and sharing the joy of music is one of my greatest passions in life. As a teacher, I am committed to nurturing my students’ talents and abilities. I aim to help each one recognize and reach their fullest potential, and help them find and discover new opportunities and possibilities for their musical lives.

I love to keep my students motivated and focused in a very positive and creative atmosphere. I am here to instill my students desire to make great music, and develop, grow, and achieve a greater confidence in themselves as performers.

My students can expect to improve week to week in their technique and music making. Every student has different specific needs, and it is my job to develop a custom tailored approach to ensure their needs are met.

My teaching methods are derived from my own experience as a performer, and from my training at Interlochen Arts Academy, The Juilliard School, and in Europe, handed down to me from my teachers including Radovan Vlatković, Frøydis Ree Wekre, and Hermann Baumann.

I teach music students of all different ages and experience levels. My goal for new or beginning students is to apply solid foundational techniques and foster a disciplined daily practice routine to ensure their progress on the horn accelerates. In order to become a great horn player for many years and maintain a beautiful sound, it is essential to have a strong solid foundation and daily routine. Together, we will find a suitable warm up method, as well as daily exercises and etudes in order to develop a strong embouchure, unlock their own individual sound, and play as relaxed as possible.

For the intermediate level or advanced students, I work on higher level etudes and technical exercises, and the building and refinement of the solo horn repertoire.

I am also glad to assist with school/orchestra audition preparation, and any other specific needs or goals the student is interested in or requests.

While my personal passion and musical endeavor is the French Horn, I am open to assisting other musicians and instrumentalists interested in developing their musical skills.

I look forward to meeting you and helping you to become a better musician!
