Alyssa Collins

French Horn

Hi, my name’s Alyssa Collins! I’ve been playing the horn for 22 years. I graduated from Northwestern University with a degree in horn performance and have been privileged to study with some of the most renowned instructors in the world, including Gail Williams, the former assistant principal horn of the Chicago Symphony, Wolfgang Vladar, the third horn of the Vienna Philharmonic, and Bruce Henniss, who played fourth horn in the Houston Symphony. I’ve since played in numerous operas, musicals and chamber ensembles. This will be my fourth year teaching in the Austin area and I am very excited to share all I’ve learned with horn students of Hendrickson High School.
