  1. Interval Etudes for Horn

  2.   Solo Studies for the Healthy Hornist for Solo Horn (2022)

    Starting at: $10.00

    This collection: Solo Studies for the Healthy Hornist contains ten solos of varying styles. Specifically written for the younger student in mind, the studies in this book will be interesting and challenging to more advanced players as well. When I retired from Western Illinois University in 2018, the focus of my teaching changed. No longer was I working with graduate students-or even undergraduate students who were doing more advanced projects on Wagner Tuba or the Natural Horn; many of my students, then, were in the younger years of high school or junior high school. So, even though I was older, I was spending more time with younger students. So, as I was spending more time teaching these younger students, I became more attuned to their activities in band, dance, and various athletic pursuits. As a result, let me give special thanks to these students who provided inspiration and test runs of these solo studies: Noah, Ernesto, Jack, Elena, Emily, Anabelle, Lorelei, Brooks, and Carter. Their energy and imagination have been an inspiration for these Solo Studies. Learn More

  8. A Fantasy on Melodies from the Old West for Horn Quartet or Horn Choir (2022)

    Starting at: $15.00

    Written for Dr. Jennifer Sholtis and the final concert of the 54th International Horn Symposium held at Texas A&M University - Kingsville, Texas in August of 2022, these old west melodies are On the Trail of the Buffalo-also known as Buffalo Skinners; The Streets of Laredo, Whoopee Ti Yi Yo, Git Along Little Dogies; and Home on the Range. These are all traditional songs that date from the 19th century history of cowboys in the Old West. The original sources of these songs are as varied, diverse, and large as the people and the prairies of The Old West. The stories and lyrics of these songs are found in the works of a number of authors-the earliest large collection is found in the book dating from 1910 by John Lomax: Cowboy Songs and Other Frontier Ballads (published by the MacMillan Company). This Fantasy may be performed by either a Horn Quartet or a Horn Choir. When performed by a Horn Choir, both of the divisi voices in Horn I Measures 107-127 should be played. Also, Horn Choir performances should divide the Fourth Horn parts between parts IVA and IVB. Horn Quartets should use parts I, II, III, and IVA. Learn More

  10. a rainBow of orange above the Green-Rhapsodic Variations for Triple Horn Choir (2021)

    Starting at: $25.00

    This composition - a rainBow of orange above the Green - includes some joyful references to some of my past visits to the BGSU campus-as well as the many happy remembrances of four and a half decades of college teaching. This set of rhapsodic variations depicts a day in the life on a college or university campus starting from the colorful dawn-walking across the campus, hearing the fragments of music in the warm-up sessions in the music building, the classes-some informative and some pedantic, the inspiring moments of repose in the library and art gallery, the excitement of the band playing at an athletic event, and a concert where singers and instrumentalists all come together on stage to perform a final hymn of the school. Like many of my compositions, this work is a set of variations on a theme. Sometimes the theme is a hymn tune or a chorale. Sometimes it is set of variations on a more abstract cantus firmus. In this case, it is a theme found in the letters B, G, C, F, and A! The Three Horn Choirs consist of Choir I: Horn 1, 2, and 3; Choir II: horn 4, 5, and 6; and Choir III: Horn 7, 8, and 9. Within the Three Horn Choirs: 1, 4, and 7 are High Horn Parts; 2, 5, and 6 are middle Horn parts: and 3, 6, and 9 are the Low Horn Parts. As the conductor studies the score, one will see that this provides for many opportunities for antiphonal effects, solo passages for all ensemble members, and symphonic sonorities as one performs the composition.

  11. Aaron Brask's - Holiday Music for Horn Quartet or Choir arranged by Aaron Brask (2021)
    $15.00

    Based on Aaron Brask's creative musicianship and humor as displayed throughout his recording: Music for the Holiday Season, this collection of classic carols can be performed in, at least, two possible formats: 1. as a Horn Quartet, or 2.with Horn Ensembles of 5-6 players or Horn Choirs. A Horn Quartet can perform parts 1 through 4. Larger ensembles may also add the optional descant parts for Joy to the World and O Come All Ye Faithful. Throughout this edition, we have endeavored to capture the spirit and the nuances of Aaron’s recording. His unique style and phrasing is worthy of discussion by teachers and students, and his performance of the fourth parts is a real model of fine low register performance. We hope that you enjoy performing Aaron Brask’s arrangements in this set of Holiday Music for Horn.

  12. Accompanied Kopprasch by Jeffrey Agrell
    $9.99

    The famous Kopprasch etudes for horn (ca. 1830) are, like almost all etude collections, for horn alone. As useful as they are in developing technique, Kopprasch etudes in themselves are rather dry and mechanical as far as considering them as music is concerned. To add some life and depth to them, we have composed piano accompaniments to the first 34 etudes. These accompaniments provide some background in harmony and rhythm for the horn player, and should make the process of working on the originals much more musical and interesting; some may even be suitable for performance. The level of the accompaniments is intermediate - not for a beginner, but by no means virtuoso, so horn teachers with some level of piano skill will be able to play many of them. Learn More

  22. Berceuse, Op. 40, No. 2 by Amy Beach arranged for Horn and Piano by Andrew Sehmann (2022)

    Starting at: $15.00

    This Berceuse is from a collection of character pieces composed by Amy Beach in 1898: Three Compositions: “La Captive,” “Berceuse,” and “Mazurka.” The Berceuse is a short lullaby in ternary ABA form. This version of the work does not remain at pitch but instead has been lowered by two octaves to allow it to fit comfortably on the horn. Some of the markings have also been adjusted to make sense on horn compared to the original. The Berceuse is part of a series of arrangements meant for a wide group of hornists-from developing players looking for a work for a festival performance -to the professional hornist searching for a lyrical character piece for a recital. This set also includes works by Cui, Grieg, and Humperdinck. Beach's Berceuse is the most difficult of this set of arrangements. These arrangements are of moderate technical difficulty, and are meant to test numerous aspects of horn playing outside of high playing. The Berceuse includes the study of ornamentation, middle register endurance, and the study of the sharp key-D major concert. Grade: 3-4 Learn More
