When you study horn at CIM, you’re considered a young professional. That means we’ll support and challenge you to reach your full artistic potential as a performer and teacher.
As a horn student you’ll be part of a department that’s designed to maintain a carefully balanced enrollment, which presents multiple opportunities to perform solo, chamber, orchestral, operatic and new music repertoire. Orchestral participation is virtually continuous. You’ll also undergo extensive preparation in the brass orchestral repertoire class conducted by our colleague, Michael Sachs, principal trumpet of The Cleveland Orchestra.
All horn majors also participate in weekly horn class, where you’ll focus on repertoire, readings of major works and master classes.
