Horn Faculty History

Indiana University Jacobs School of Music horn students enjoy a variety of teachers, with their unique pedagogical approaches. The horn faculty, past and present, have come from very diverse backgrounds and offer a myriad of experience and knowledge. In particular, we remember our Distinguished Professor Philip Farkas, whose legacy is so important and influenced so many players.
