Camp director, James Nickel of the National Symphony Orchestra, invites you to join him online for Mason Arts Academy’s first ever virtual French horn camp. We will be joined by an all-star lineup of hornists such as Jonathan Hammill of the Tokyo Symphony, Geoffrey Pilkington from the Washington National Opera, Robert Readen from National Symphony, Carolyn Wahl from the Florida Orchestra, and Chad Yarbrough from the New York Philharmonic and the Broadway show Wicked.
We will start the day with a guided warm-up sessions, and then jump into topics such as how to nail that All-State audition or chair test. We will work on taking the fear out of transposition, bass clef, and sight reading. We will help you choose awesome solos give you the opportunity to perform for each other. We will talk about the best apps to help you become the best players, and much more. In addition to our group session, each person will receive mini private lessons.
