John was great with my 4yo son. He was patient and kind. We look forward to more lessons

Hiring J.R. has been an incredibly uplifting, fun, and educational experience. A far better experience than I could have asked or hoped for. I’m learning! And excited for the progress, which does take an investment of practice, energy & time. He is extremely patient & flexible with how to cope with my needs (when possible) and super supportive: I’m almost 50 and paralyzed.

As corny as this sounds I’ve never known anyone with such a broad overall knowledge, experience and wisdom about music and instruments. If I have a question about my piano playing, or virtually any music question, he either has the answer or helps me find it if he doesn’t.

He is extremely knowledgeable and respectful and has more than earned my respect and gratitude.

Hiring him is one of the best choices I’ve ever made. The only regret I have is that I didn’t hire him sooner.

Love my 1st lesson. I learned so much in one day. Definitely looking forward to my next lesson.

I love Bebé as an instructor. She is so patient and comforting. The lessons are not complicated but still push you toward becoming a better pianist. By the second lesson I was playing the C major scale with both hands with rhythm and proper fingering. I've already recommended her as an instructor to friends I know who are interested in piano & guitar. I plan on having Bebé as an instructor as long as we both have availability and hopefully that's for a while. I genuinely love it here!

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.

Online French Horn Teacher

I am adept at teaching proper technique in a way that makes horn playing easy and fun! I aim to address healthy principles of beautiful sound production, as well as attention to detail, phrasing, and overall aristry. For newer players, the focus will lie on building a solid, efficient technique, which in time can expand into beautiful music making. I teach students of any level.

About Joe

Hello, all! I am Joseph Alberico, and I currently study Horn Performance at the Eastman School of Music, pursuing a Bachelor's degree. I am under the tutelage, primarily, of W. Peter Kurau, the Principal Horn of the Rochester Philharmonic. I have also studied with many other horn heroes, including

Joe Alberico is a musician who is very well versed in speaking about the tips and tricks when expressing the sounds an instrument can make. While he may be talented in speaking through the horn he’s also very talented in explaining the steps in how to do so at a high level. When I was preparing a solo originally meant for horn, he seemed to know everything about the motion of every phrase in the piece and what is necessary on how to achieve a true beauty is a piece’s story. With his teachings he has made me a better musician as he opened my eyes to what power there is behind music and how we can achieve that said impact that music sets to accomplish.
Morris
Working with Joe has been one of the most profitable musical experiences I have ever had the opportunity of having. His knowledge of music theory and his technical and musical know-how on the French horn are unparalleled, and his compassion as an educator were incredibly helpful in my musical journey. Joe is incredibly knowledgeable and helpful when it comes to chamber music, orchestral excerpts, and general technical playing.
Dave
Joe showed me that classical music could be exciting and engaging. By talking to him about the particularities and subtleties that every piece holds, I was able to understand just how beautiful every great work really was. By hearing him then play those pieces, I was able to hear exactly what we were discussing. In short, Joe has opened up a side of music I'd never considered, and that makes me a better listener, collaborator, and player.

Xin is an energetic and friendly instructor. I was so glad to see she brings her horn to the lessons as well. My child connected with her right away, and he has a renewed excitement for his instrument.
Jill D.
Xin is a superb instructor. She is very patient and has provided me with techniques and tips that have improved my horn skills significantly. She is very knowledgeable and online instruction allows her to provide immediate feedback during the lesson. Though I have a long way to go, the improvements I have experienced have far surpassed my expectations.
Andrew
I haven't taken lessons from Xin, but as a colleague of hers at the Eastman School of Music, I can honestly say that she is one of the best and most dedicated horn players I've ever met. I have no doubt that Xin's skills as a musician would transfer well to her teaching. You won't go wrong with her.

She would use analogies that I hadn't heard before but made it very easy to understand what I should be doing. Emily was very helpful in preparing me for PMEA auditions and my senior recital."
