I have performed under the batons of Bernard Haitink, Fabio Luisi, Alan Gilbert, Jaap van Zweden, and other established principal conductors. While in New York, I refined the technique of the horn and performance practice with three master hornists of the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra.
I am fully committed to the process of mastering the operation of the Horn as well as refining coherent communication of the musical voice to effectively engage an audience. I practice the Horn with an efficient, flexible, and an evolving procedure with the goal of performing at a moment’s notice. I study scores while listening to records with quality Hi-Fi several hours a day.
I also have experience with jazz trumpet before my decision to dedicate post-high school education to professional Horn study.
I am confident in my abilities to improve virtually any student’s issues and subsequently reach and build the following steps for musical intuition. My knowledge of technique and problem solving will give substantial substance to any Horn student.
