Other Blogs and Websites
There are plenty of other sites and blogs for horn people out there, but not all of them are high quality. A lot of them, like this one, were created as projects for degree requirements and then become left unattended. That being said, there are some truly great blogs that are frequently updated by leaders in the horn world. Here are a few of my favorites:
www.jamesboldin.com - James Boldin’s Horn World
James’ site is an all around resources for the horn world. He has a blog that is frequently updated and personal information about his life as a teacher and performer. He also has a job listings page that has a current list of professional ensemble auditions and teaching jobs that are open.
www.hornmatters.com - Horn Matters, by John Ericson and Bruce Hembd
This blog is a HUGE resource for horn players. These guys have arranged their blog by topic and they create new posts all the time. This blog is one of the most user friendly music blogs that I have encountered.
Colin’s blog is also frequently updated, but what is unique about this blog are his posts on equipment. He includes information on the small details that matter on subjects like mouthpieces and includes comparisons that are helpful when trying to choose something new that could work for you.
