It’s August, which means that the Kentucky All-State music is out! For 2016-2017, the two excerpts are Kopprasch #39 and Shoemaker #5. Like last year, I’ll be putting together some resources for high school horn players to help them prepare for the audition. Stay tuned!
If you want some extra help on these etudes or just don’t know where to start practicing, don’t forget that I offer horn lessons online via Skype and Google Hangouts in addition to in-person lessons in Louisville, KY!
