From the age of Internet dinosaurs: a “Horn Studio Website” roundup

- - Please visit: Wichita Band Instrument Company - -

With the popularity of Facebook pages, the classic, stand-alone “horn studio” website seems to be in rapid decline as of 2015. Facebook pages, however, are popping up seemingly every day. Why? Well, they are really easy to build but also they get around some of the problems of traditional websites as well. The big one being for example if I posted photos of students in our ASU horn studio website I would have to have signed waivers from them to do so. Facebook, on the other hand, is outside of the control of a university server, anything goes it seems.

The below is a list of the most notable actual studio websites found online as of now. Some are more or less “template” designs put up by music admissions, but all of them below seem to include at least a little additional content generated by a horn professor.

Also, our goal is not to shame — several we found that look to be far out of date have not been included in the list. Each one though, no matter what, creates an online impression of the horn students and the horn programs at their institution.

Finally, which one is the biggest? For sure it is the University of Iowa site, to which this Golden Clam is awarded. Check their Site Map for quite a lot of content.

The following stuido websites are in alphabetical order by keyword. Enjoy!
