Private French Horn Teacher

The concept is simple: empowerment to generate mastery on your instrument. I like to work with you at your level, from beginner and up. My goal is to not only help you understand the mechanics of the instrument, but to empower you to create as limitlessly as possible on it. I will be working with you on things such as rhythm, ear training, embouchre development, breath control, sight reading, understanding musical notation and terminology and beyond through a few of my own techniques.

I have found the best approach to doing this is by selecting music that you like to listen to and play, as it is much more fun to practice something that you enjoy rather than doing busywork to build skill.

Tyler arrived early, spent lots of time with my unruly daughter, and kept her on track! He's a good combination of fun/playful but also has a natural authority so that my daughter actually listens to his instruction. Well done and thank you Tyler!
Kerry
Great first lesson - looking forward to the next one.
Nicolas O.
I feel like I learned a lot in an hour and he really helped me find an anchor point that I can go back to if I am stuck on a note. I realized that he went over every proven method that I learned throughout my experiences from elementary school to highschool and then added on to them by explaining how these methods help. He even showed me methods usually taught to college musicians.

The reason I always believed in private lessons is because no matter how few or how many you take, the learning process gets expedited immensely.

I definitely would recommend this teacher for learning a brass instrument.

Our son really enjoyed his first lesson with Tina! He was feeling discouraged and was considering giving up French Horn because of the pandemic and being unable to continue to take band class. After one lesson he's excited again and he said he really enjoyed his lesson. We're hoping with Tina's help he'll be able to continue with band despite all of the craziness right now!

Marcus is a very skilled and very knowledgeable horn player and teacher. He is very friendly and easy to talk to. It is difficult to find a teacher that can articulate and describe how to play the horn as clearly and precisely as he does. you’re in good hands with Marcus!
Maya
Marcus’s musical intuition is amazing. He was able to articulate some of my troubles playing and provide me with new tools to work on them. 10/10 would recommend to anyone who wants to improve any aspect of their playing. Bonus: he’s super nice and eases any nervousness you might having playing in front of people.
Ashley
Marcus is a phenomenal horn player and after just a few lessons with him, my playing has improved immensely. Great teacher!

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.

Talented teachers are rare. Like a great coach i sports... the coach doesn’t need to be the top athlete in his field to know how to teach each team member to hone their best abilities, he just has to know and see how to teach you how to get there. Being an outstanding teacher is a great talent all in itself... and that is Jesse. He has that quality and ability to lead, focus and take you where you want to go.
Romy R.
Jesse has given directions on how to successfully become a better musician. His approach and explanation on musical theories was much more understandable than what I was previously reading. Overall, I found the lessons to be very usefull.

"As a musician, Zac is above and beyond talented. Because of his proficiency and excellence, he offers great insight and helpful hints on how to play properly and with support, two extremely important parts of being a musician. Lastly, it is quite obvious what music means to him. His passion is inspiring, and makes me want to continue to pursue and practice my instrument. His lessons helped me develop from a second part to a first part, enabling me to play higher and more challenging parts for my band. Knowing that I was able to leave better than I started makes myself feel lucky and appreciative that I was able to take lessons with a person like Zac. Overall, one of the best music instructors I have had the pleasure of working with."

He is a wealth of knowledge and has an excellent understanding of pacing material correctly for the level of student he is working with. My kids were engaged and excited without being overwhelmed.

"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!"
