Notes from Abe Kniaz
Abe Kniaz (1923-2007) was principal horn in Columbus and
(for ten years) in the National Symphony in Washington DC
before teaching at Indiana University and finally at Laval
University in Quebec.
Abe did not publish any methods during his lifetime, but one
of his former students and later colleague, Thom Gustavson,
collected his notes, with the help of Abe's widow, Edith Bedard.
