The weekly horn studio master class is overseen by all the horn faculty. The class provides an opportunity for students to practice performing in front of their peers, receive feedback from the horn faculty and apply skills that are being developed in private lessons. In addition to individual presentation, students learn how to function in an ensemble, addressing the issues of tone production, balance, blend, intonation and rhythm. Studio class also includes orchestral and operatic audition preparation with mock auditions.
A class in Wagner Tuba technique and repertoire is offered every spring quarter. This opportunity gives the serious student exposure to this most challenging instrument. Repertoire includes Wagner's "Ring Cycle" operas and Bruckner Symphonies.
It is essential for the development of student musicians to hear music performed live, at the highest professional level. Chicago offers many opportunities with esteemed ensembles such as the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, Lyric Opera, Grant Park Orchestra and Music of the Baroque. Student tickets are often available for a discounted price.
