French hornist with over 40 years of performing and teaching experience is available for private lessons, group instruction and horn section coaching.
I am the French horn (and vocal) instructor at the Music & Arts store in Anaheim at the corner of State College Ave. and Santa Ana Street, and am accepting new students at any age and level of experience at this location.
I enjoy working with beginners as much as I do with advanced players -- and everything in between! Some students have been with me for years, and others have just started, with little to no prior musical experience.
As a member of the Brass Faculty of the Fullerton College Music Department for over 30 years, many of my students have gone on to successful musical endeavors and careers, performing as soloists or in a variety of musical organizations, as directors of their own ensembles, and as music educators themselves. Students of mine have attended or are currently attending Orange County School of the Arts, CSU Fullerton, CSU Northridge, CSU Long Beach, Chapman University, UCLA, Butler University, Berkeley School of Music (Boston), UC Santa Barbara, University of Indiana and Arizona State as music majors (a number have received full or partial scholarships).
A graduate of the University of New Hampshire, I have been playing professionally since 1976 in orchestras, wind ensembles, brass and woodwind chamber groups, etc., on both east and west coasts. I've been a featured soloist with orchestras and wind groups on numerous occasions throughout my career, and am currently serving as Principal Horn in the Orange County Wind Symphony, the new Orange County Pops, as well as the Orchestral Collective of Orange County.
I can also furnish a Brass Quintet or French horn ensemble for your wedding, holiday party or other special event.
