Welcome to the hornsmith.net website. Above are a number of separate areas which you will find of interest -----of interest to horn players----as in French Horn. The topics include articles and comments on the history of the horn, helpful suggestions for playing instrument, and excerpts from a forthcoming book, Don't Miss which approaches playing the horn in a different way.
The site also offers players the opportunity to read my teaching philosophy and view a WSU Horn Class syllabus which lists the major repertoire I cover for both undergraduate and graduate students. There is also a section listing important dates for the horn class, including recitals/performances by student soloists, important brass and wind faculty performance dates, and performances/masterclasses by guest artists. Additionally, links to related websites have been established to give the viewer an opportunity to learn about organizations with which I am associated or which I feel deserve a wider audience.
Questions? please e-mail me at the address listed below. I have a very busy teaching and playing schedule, but will try to answer suitable questions and comments as time allows. Thanks for visiting hornsmith.net. Enjoy!
