OUR APPROACH: Your Best is Good Enough!
The New Horizons Band movement was started by Prof. Roy Ernst at Eastman School of Music in Rochester, NY. Since planting that seed in 1991, hundreds of bands, orchestras and other New Horizons ensembles have been formed – one of which is NHBFV.
"My philosophy was that anyone can learn to play music at a level that will bring a sense of accomplishment and the ability to perform in a group."
-- Prof. Roy Ernst, National Founder
