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!

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!

Private French Horn Teacher

I have enjoyed teaching a studio of 50-60 french horn players in the last 11 years and 25 total years teaching horn. My students consistently earn top honors, such as 14-18 students per year for the last five years placing in Tennessee's Midstate Bands. Many make All-State, Governor's School, and get full music scholarships in college.

I have a passion for students experiencing great music making. Meanwhile I instill solid horn foundations such as good embouchure, sitting position/horn angle, tonguing, tone, and breathing. I adapt my exact teaching methods to students' learning styles and goals, often using fun and artistic music I've written. I have taught 3rd graders to 70 year olds, beginners to college and professional players.
I play horn professionally, having played with Nashville Symphony, Colorado Symphony and as a regular member of the symphonies of Huntsville. Alabama; Evansville, Indianna; Owensboro, Kentucky, Greeley, Colorado, and Cheyenne Wyoming as well as in Gateway ...

Steve is a great. He has helped my beginning trumpet player build confidence in her ability. He always takes the time to explain why trumpet players do certain things, which has really helped my daughter. She looks forward to trumpet lessons every week.

John was great with my 4yo son. He was patient and kind. We look forward to more lessons
James M.
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 had next to no experience on the horn, and I had learned and improved greatly from the first lesson. From my experience, should you need to jump into horn from the bottom, Beckie is the ideal teacher because of her attention to detail and positive attitude that makes progress exponential."

"Chris is a fantastic musician and teacher. My son began taking lessons from him as a beginner French horn player. Chris brought his skill level up quickly and challenged him to play in the county solo and ensemble competition. The results were a supperior performance, with aclades from the judge to my son for learning all the notes so quickly (5 months). Thanks Chris you have made a life long impression on my son."

"We only had one lesson with Amy, but I was impressed and I give her a 5. She was very patient with Josh, even when Josh wasn't very focused. I was impressed with how she conducted her lessons, even though her children were home. They were very respectful of our lesson time and never had an interruption. That says a lot about Amy's dedication to focus on her students."
