A passionate teacher and performer, Amy Beth Horman has enjoyed an active solo career as soloist and recitalist throughout the US and Europe. She made her debut with the National Symphony at age 15 performing the Tchaikovsky Concerto. A graduate of the Paris Conservatory of Music (CNSMDP), Ms. Horman received her first prize at age 15 and then was chosen that same year for their 3rd Cycle program in the studio of violinist, Gerard Poulet. Previous teachers include Jody Gatwood (National Philharmonic Orchestra Concertmaster Emeritus) and Patricia Hurd (Wolf Trap Opera Orchestra, Washington Ballet Orchestra).
Students of Ms. Horman have been selected for the Junior Division of the Menuhin Competition, the Boris Goldstein Competition, featured on From the Top and recipients of the Young Arts Foundation. Former students have gone on to receive prizes in the Junior Tchaikovsky Competition, The Cooper International Competition, and the International Mozart Competition.
“My focus in teaching is to embrace the whole child while helping them reach their artistic potential through a healthy technical foundation and strategic regimen of training and support.” Ms. Horman is also the creator of the podcast “Beyond the Triangle”, a podcast written for the parents of young artists.
Acclaimed by the Washington Post:
“Intelligence and emotional generosity... unerring sense of line and gift for highlighting important themes... She brought passionate intensity to a program of disparate works, from Franck’s familiar Sonata in A and a Bach partita that sounded characteristically like the ruminative thoughts of the composer in measured reflection, to a sonata by Corigliano... Her vigorous reading of a soaring solo passage in the Corigliano... had members of the audience quietly craning their necks forward as if in hope of bathing a little deeper in her exceptionally warm tone.”
