Reception: welcome!


My Doctor of Musical Arts degree from the University of Illinois (2008)focused on the lack of academic treatment of solo horn with wind band. I sought to briefly chronicle the genre, analyze a handful of benchmark original works, and create a selected bibliography. This was a labor of love completed in November 2008.  The doctoral project is entitled “An Analysis of Three Original Works for Solo Horn with Wind Band Accompaniment.”

Most band directors and horn players aren’t aware of the history and the great amount of repertoire available. Since about 1993 I have spent a considerable amount of time trying to locate and centralize information about the music in order to make it more publicly accessible. I hope that this website makes it easy for you to gather useful information as you plan performances, undergo research, or just learn some of the fascinating history of the genre.


I am just getting started, so pages and information will be added as they are ready. Thanks for your patience!
