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!

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!

Emily is an incredible person, musician, and mentor and is capable of teaching students at all ages and levels. She's acquired a wealth of information through her studies with some of the best teachers in the field. She is dedicated and will ensure that you, as a student, learn how to play the horn correctly and have the best possible experience. I guarantee you will see incredible results upon working with her."

"I highly recommend Emily to teach any horn player at any level! She is an incredible player and has a beautiful rich tone all around the instrument. As a professional horn player in various orchestras and instructor at Cornell University and Binghamton University, I can honestly guarantee that you would be very happy to learn from her! She is a very kind person, but also very serious about teaching you to play the instrument correctly. She had been taught by the best teachers out there and you will learn to play the horn properly by doing all the fundamentals needed, but you will also have fun while learning from her! Emily is the best!"
