Welcome to the official webpage for the Horn Studio at the University of California, Santa Barbara!
Our Music program has undergone some remarkable changes in the past year, with a unique focus on chamber music and chamber orchestra. Dr. G continues to be the only full-time horn professor in the UC system, with a background as a member of the Atlanta Symphony, Cincinnati Chamber Orchestra, and the National Symphony (DC).
The UCSB Horn Studio, which currently has ten students, provides a challenging, yet encouraging and supportive environment for horn players. The UCSB Horn Studio is dedicated not only to mastering the technical nuance of the horn, but also brass chamber music, orchestral repertoire, and communicating a solo voice that is uniquely yours.
We are also interested in attracting students with interests and capabilities that enable minors or double majors.
Our campus is located on the beautiful beach of sunny Southern California just 100 miles north of Los Angeles.
