Dr. Tiffany N. Damicone has brought her passion about efficient and effective pedagogy into the classrooms at Ohio Wesleyan University and The Ohio State University (OSU) in addition to presenting lectures throughout the Mid-West. She began studying international concepts of horn playing in Berlin while providing critical edits on Fergus McWilliam’s method, Blow Your Own Horn!: Horn Heresies. She later focused on the horn pedagogy in Prague for her DMA document, “The Singing Style of the Bohemians”. She continues to investigate the Czech influences on horn playing, most recently in Porto, Portugal, for a segue article to her 3-part series on Czech horn traditions in The Horn Call.
Dr. Damicone earned graduate degrees from OSU and New England Conservatory while performing in solo recitals, orchestras, musicals, and chamber ensembles throughout Ohio and Massachusetts. Presently, she is the IHS Area Representative for Ohio, is on faculty at the Jefferson Academy of Music at OSU, and performs with Columbus BrassWorks, St. Paul Cathedral Brass, and the Ashland and Wheeling Symphonies. When trying not to think about horn, she enjoys cooking and tending to her garden in Worthington, Ohio, which she shares with her husband, cat, and two chinchillas.
