"How I met my Teacher" personal reflections on formative relationships compiled and edited by Maslza Buell VOICE AS FIRST INSTRUMENT My name is Erin Cooper-Gay and I play the French Horn. These days I am Acting Utility Horn with the Toronto Symphony Orchestra, and Principal Horn with the Akron and Canton Symphony Orchestras in Ohio (which means I do a lot of driving!). Occasionally I get to sub with The Cleveland Orchestra, which is amazing. And I do as much I can, when time permits. But I wanted to begin by talking about singing. Ever since I can remember, I've been singing. Singing is such a natual extension of oneself. I will always love to sing and I regard it as the foundation for all areas of music. It was truly the musical foundation I began building from when I started playing the horn. My parents, Ann Cooper Gay, and Errol Gay, were my earliest teachers in every way possible. They are still two of my closest mentors. My mother was an opera singer, flutist and organist and my father was a conductor, pianist and trombonist. They both have devoted their lives to music and most importantly to teaching music. My morn always encouraged me (and still does!) to develop my voice. When I was young, I valued her input and paid attention because she was my mother. Now, I also look back and value the millions of hours of dedication coming from a professional singer. My dad, although never a professional singer, fancied himself one. During a performance of Madame Butterfly the baritone character Sharpless started getting hoarse and dad ended up singing the part while conducting from the pit! My mother founded the High Park Girls' Choir of Toi-onto in 1986 when I was seven years old and I sang in it for eleven years. Dad was also an integral part of the organization, accompanying, directing and playing any instrument we needed. It was there that I had some of my most inspiring early musical experiences and became very aware of the power of expression through m1:1- sic. The passion my parents had for music in general and teaching . was contagious and they would often enlist me to lead sectional rehearsals.
