The Brass Junkies Episode 42: Kristy Morrell

Listen via


Kristy Morrell, Chair of the Department of Winds and Percussion at the University of Southern California Thornton School of Music, and the principal French Horn instructor at the Colburn School of Performing Arts, joins Andrew & Lance against her better judgment.

In an in-depth discussion, we learn how her performance of “Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head” as a child impacted her career (Spoiler Alert: It didn’t). However, we do get to hear some amazing stories about playing on hundreds of movie soundtracks, how she defines success and how situational awareness is one of the best skills you can possess as a musician (Spoiler Alert: AND as a human).

Kristy also talks about her great book, “Musician, Heal Thyself."
