The French Horn, No Longer the Wildcard of Your Ensemble: Natural Principles that Make Your Horn Section Stand Out
- This clinic will equip music educators from the elementary through college level with the knowledge to make the French Horn an approachable instrument to teach. Concepts will be introduced in an accessible fashion that will focus on the most natural way to implement them. Examples of how to make the horn attractive will be presented in the form of a live performance and media examples where the horn is a key member.
