Just breathe! Dr Mark Almond, associate principal horn of the San Francisco Symphony Orchestra, gives us a fascinating insight into one of the most important aspects of horn playing: the lungs. Dr Mark Almond, MA BM BCh MRCP PhD, was a specialist lung doctor in London but also played with all the top orchestras because he was also such a great horn player. This makes for a fantastic combination of knowledge and we are so grateful that he shared it with us on this Horn Hangout all about Lungs. Thank you so much, dear Dr. Mark!
