Welcome to the official webpage for the Horn Studio at the University of California, Santa Barbara located on the beautiful beach of sunny Southern California! The UCSB Horn Studio, which currently has around 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 in the learning of orchestral repertoire and in finding and communicating your unique solo voice.

If you, as a horn player and student, are looking to win an orchestral position, pursue graduate school, or simply want to perform and teach the horn better, then the UCSB Horn Studio is the place for you! Please, feel free to peruse the site, and if you have any questions or would like more information, don’t hesitate to Contact Us. We would be delighted to hear from you!
