French Horn

Recommended Reading

A small collection of books that I've found useful in my studies and throughout my career. Undoubtedly an incomplete list, but probably enough to get the juices flowing!

Some of these books can be found at the UVic Libary, indicated by their call numbers being listed beside them.
