2018 KY All-State Horn Clinic Notes


Every year the University of Louisville puts on a clinic to help high school players around the state with the All-State etudes.

Each instrument has its own instructor (usually the University professor for that instrument), but this week the UofL brass faculty are doing a tour of Japan, so I got asked to step in with the 20-something horn players that showed up.

I’ve gone through both All-State etudes quite a bit so far this year, both recording them and working with lots of area high school students, so I was definitely familiar with them both. Since there is a lot of information to cover for the two etudes, and not lots of time (around 2 hours) I decided to do an outline to make sure I didn’t forget anything. I’m putting the outline here in case anyone from that clinic is looking for a refresher, or as a reference for anyone else looking for some more help with the Kentucky All-State horn music.
