Now accepting new students for in studio and online lessons.

I specialize in taking the mystery out of playing the French horn! 

​ The "secret" is understanding  "horn basics".  I use 40+ years of experience to present students a clear, logical explanation of the fundamentals along with important concepts and development technique.   


I am very proud to say that over the years many of my students have participated in "All County" and All State" and other prestigious regional and national Honor Bands.  Many of them have received substantial scholarships for college and several of them are now professional artists and teachers.   Others successfully used the horn to gain affordable educations in other fields through music scholarships to build dual degrees in other fields such as business, law, and engineering.
