One of the most visible hornists today, John Ericson has wide-ranging experience as an orchestral player, soloist, and teacher.

Co-founder of the online magazine and resource Horn Matters, Ericson began his professional career with serving for six seasons as Third Horn in the Nashville Symphony. From there, he turned to full time teaching, first at the Crane School of Music (SUNY Potsdam), where he launched Horn Articles Online. Since 2001 he has served on the faculty at Arizona State University and is Brass Area Coordinator. Besides teaching at Arizona State University, in recent years Ericson has also served as artist faculty at the Interlochen Center for the Arts and the Brevard Music Center. He holds degrees from Indiana University, the Eastman School of Music, and Emporia State University.

Canto CDHis three solo CDs on the Summit label received critical acclaim: The Horn Call hailed Les Adeiux for "Fantastic playing.... The level of musicality, nuance and artistry is not to be missed" and called Canto a "Terrific collaboration between horn and piano." Author of numerous publications, he has performed and presented sessions at eight international horn symposiums and numerous regional events.

Les Adieux CDAs is noted with the sales listings, due to the EU Value-Added Tax (VAT) changes that went into effect as of January 1, 2015 we were prompted to reconsider our European sales of E-books and international sales in general. Based on our reading of the law we believe that we cannot sell E-books at all in Europe at this time, and, with shipping costs being so high, international print copy sales were always very slow. For these reasons we no longer provide online sales via our shopping cart outside of the USA and Canada. Our apologies to those impacted.
