Andrew Bain

Principal Horn, Los Angeles Philharmonic
Founder of Invested Musician

It's time to overcome the challenges that are holding you back from your full potential.

Does this sound like you?

You're a conservatory graduate, but your degree isn't paying off.

Or you play music at night, but you're completely dependent on your day job.

You're taking every audition that comes your way, but you're not winning seats.

You practice diligently, but you’ve hit a plateau with your music.

You play well — but you’re ready to push your limits.

You're looking to reach your FULL POTENTIAL.

"I’ve seen so many musicians struggle to reach their goals."

And I know what it's like because I struggled, too. It's been a long path to get where I am today — one filled with many obstacles.

Like you, I am constantly looking for ways to improve my playing — for the right education, the right guidance, structure, and motivation.
I couldn't find it...

So I built it.


- Andrew Bain, Principal Horn LA Phil, Founder
