Private French Horn Teacher

I started playing French horn in college. When I decided to become a music teacher, I had to learn how to play all instruments, and I fell in love with the horn!

I've been teaching for over 30 years. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to produce a good, solid tone, begin learning how to read music, and be able to play simple songs. Any beginning horn method book will get us started. In addition to your horn and book, you will also need valve oil. As you progress, a a metronome may be helpful. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

About Linda

I have been a public school music teacher for 30+ years. I am an optimistic, enthusiastic person, who will help you learn music reading in addition to music playing. I started on piano as a young child, and studied clarinet from elementary school through college, where I focused on french horn. I h

My son has loved taking lessons with Linda. She is setting just the right pace with him. She is flexible given his strengths and weaknesses. He was genuinely disappointed when I told him he couldn't go to lessons this week because of a family commitment. Can't recommend highly enough!
Janet P.
very comfortable and satisfying first lesson.
JoAnn C.
Linda was great! As an adult beginner with the cello she made the lesson enjoyable and easy to follow. She adjusted quickly for where I knew a little and where I knew nothing. Highly recommend her!

Online French Horn Teacher

Hello fellow horn players! My name is Emily Toth, and I am freelance musician and private french horn instructor in the greater Cincinnati area. I would love the opportunity to make music with you and help guide you along your musical journey!

My enthusiastic personality, organized nature, and my dedication to a student centered teaching approach has established the foundation upon which my private studio has grown and flourished. I maintain high expectations, while compassionately guiding my students to realize their full potential not only as young musicians, but as confident individuals in their day to day lives.

I have been teaching privately in Cincinnati since 2011, and currently have a private horn studio of over 40 students from the Walnut Hills, Milford, West Clermont, Indian Hill, Madeira, Loveland, and Oak Hills School Districts. I earned my Master's of Music degree from the College-Conservatory of Music at the University of Cincinnati in 2012. I am currently the 4th

My son started in-person lessons with Emily in the fall of 2019. We went online with her during the Covid-19 shutdown. The two of them never missed a beat (music pun intended)! I feel like he has continued to show good growth as a horn player. Emily does a wonderful job of teaching proper technique while using my son's own interests to keep him playing. For example, my 12-year-old is a Pokemon fan, so Emily found Pokemon theme sheet music for the horn as well as video game themes. He really loved that and I appreciate that she knows how to connect with kids to help them learn a challenging instrument. I am thankful that my son's band teacher recommended Emily and I, in turn, wholeheartedly recommended her to any future horn players.
Natalie
Very helpful! Emily even spent a couple of minutes past the scheduled time to help my daughter during her first lesson! Looking forward to the next lesson!
John
Emily is a fantastic teacher! Our daughter has progressed a tremendous amount during her time with Emily, and she really enjoys the lessons. If you are looking for a french horn teacher, I highly recommend Emily.

He’s very patient and kind especially for 2 active little girls.

Thomas is honestly an amazing musician and teacher. He was really patient with me. Despite having to deal with major timezone differences (as I live in Myanmar), he took the time to figure it out. Also, he helped me figure out the stuff it took me months to figure out. He also really knows what he's doing. I learned so much in that hour of practice. 10/10 would recommend him.

"My son has been taking lessons with Mr. Gallo for a few months, and his progress on the french horn has been amazing and quite surprising! Mr. Gallo is extremely patient and provides excellent instruction that has helped my son develop technical skills to improve his intonation, endurance, and pitch recognition. Mr. Gallo has the perfect balance of guided instruction, positive feedback, making the lesson fun, and ability to push a student further in his playing. I was a little hesitant to try online lessons, but it is honestly the best solution when you have an instructor who cares so deeply for his students and their improvement. I would absolutely recommend Mr. Gallo!"
