Julie Landsman Presents Caruso Tribute

Julie Landsman has created a web page, pdfs and videos describing the Carmine Caruso method, and has graciously made it available to the IHS for our website.

Juilie writes:

"I first met Carmine Caruso when I was in high school in Ardsley, New York in 1968. He taught  our high school band the basic exercises as warm ups for  our band rehearsals. We had a fantastic, award winning band! I have been practicing and teaching this method ever since.

"These exercises, when practiced correctly, help prepare your body to play music with more ease and refinement. Please enjoy these videos, free of charge. This is my way of honoring my great teacher, Carmine Caruso, and his  method, that has enriched our lives as instrumentalists."

The IHS is very grateful to Julie Landsman for creating this tribute to Carmine Caruso, for documenting his method for posterity,  and for making it available to all hornists to use and learn from. The Caruso tribute can be found under Multimedia in the main menu.

Hornexcerpts.org Joins IHS Online

from Daren Robbins, creator of hornexcerpts.org:

I am thrilled to announce that, starting today, hornexcerpts.org has a new home on the website of the International Horn Society. In the eleven years since its launch hornexcerpts.org has been an important resource in the study of orchestral horn excerpts and one of the most popular horn-related websites on the internet. Although hornexcerpts.org now resides on the IHS website it can be accessed with the same address. Simply type “hornexcerpts.org” into your web browser and you will be taken to the new and improved site. The IHS is the perfect home for this website. It has the mission and the resources, and its staff has the technological know-how to keep hornexcerpts.org a relevant and beneficial learning tool for for many generations of horn students to come.
