kniazNotes from Abe Kniaz on playing the horn, plus recordings of him playing excerpts, have been added on the Multimedia menu. The Table of Contents is on the right side of the screen, with access to any topic. You can download a pdf of the complete document from the Kniaz Home page.

Kniaz (1923-2007) was principal horn in the Columbus OH Symphony and for ten years in the National Symphony in Washington DC before teaching at Indiana University and Laval University in Quebec, Canada. He never published a method, but he wrote copious notes, which were collated by Thom Gustafson, a former student. Steven Ovitsky restored the recordings. Kniaz never thought he had the answers, but he asked questions and searched for the answers.
