About Beth Hall and Her Dressage Freestyle Music
I take pride in bringing a diverse background in dressage and music to the art of freestyle design at Woodwind Studios. With over two decades of experience in equestrian music editing, I know exactly how to take your dressage freestyle performances to the next level. My credentials are as follows:
I hold a bachelor’s degree in music from the University of Vermont. In addition, I have a master of music degree from the University of Massachusetts Amherst, where I was awarded a full fellowship. I also minored in animal science at the University of Massachusetts.
My music expertise includes teaching flute at the University of Mobile and performing as a soloist with the Magnolia Chamber Orchestra and the Baldwin Pops. Over the years, I have been able to:
- Graduate from the USDF “L” Judge Education Program
- Breed and Train Swedish Warmblood Horses
- Teach Dressage Lessons and Clinics
- Host Recognized Competitions
- Conduct Freestyle Clinics Nationwide
My dressage mentors include Arlene Rigdon, Jos Sevriens, and at university, Susan Blinks and Sarah Geikie.
I have contributed educational articles to USDF Connection and Dressage Today. In addition, I have been interviewed on the USDF’s Dressage Radio Show on multiple occasions to give expert commentary on freestyle tests.
Most recently, I was featured in a USDF Connection article as a successful musical freestyle design professional. I have also done Zoom interviews with international dressage judge Cesar Torrente (also my freestyle client) and The Chronicle of the Horse blogger Lauren Sprieser.
My client list includes professional, amateur, junior, and young riders. I have also created music for the following highly recognized competitors:
- Lauren Sprieser
- Felicitas von Neumann-Cosel
- Emily Miles
- David Blake
Several NAYC silver and gold medalists, such as Lauren Asher and Lexie Kment, have also been my clients.
