A native of Milledgeville, Georgia, William Horne studied piano and composition as an undergraduate at Florida State University and completed a master's in music at Yale University. Dr. Horne accepted a faculty position at Loyola University New Orleans in 1976, and later completed a DMA in composition at the University of North Texas.

William has composed in a wide variety of genres. Recent larger works include a clarinet concerto, a string quartet, sonatas for flute, piano, and violin, a serenade for nine instruments, and a setting of the Te Deum written for the 100th anniversary of the founding of Loyola University. William’s interest in musical scholarship has led to articles about Brahms and Beethoven that have appeared in scholarly journals and essay collections, including The Musical Quarterly, The Journal of Musicology, Beethoven Forum, and Brahms Studies.

Currently, William serves as area coordinator of theory and composition in Loyola’s School of Music. He also serves as a member of the Board of Directors of the American Brahms Society and co-editor of its newsletter with Loyola colleague Alice Clark.
