Major Lessons and Conclusions:

The underlying theme coming from all of the lessons I received is that my air and the way I use it is of the utmost importance. The intake, the ability to sustain, the way the air is supported and the speed of release were all points that arose many times in the course of my lessons. Although I already understand the importance of air stream, the way each teacher described and demonstrated their individual methods has given me a wealth of techniques to draw on in my own teaching and practise. Other frequently mentioned concepts included the organisation that goes into preparing for high playing, including embouchure placement and simple exercises to prepare/train the embouchure and commitment to musical approaches and how to approach practising. I look forward to sharing recently acquired skills, knowledge and zest for the art form of horn playing with my colleagues in the Queensland Symphony Orchestra, my students and my continuing involvement with youth orchestra programs such as the Australian Youth Orchestra, as well as through my various networks in the orchestral community.

Key words: Pedagogy, Orchestras, Performance, Horn Player, Techniques
