I have been playing horn for 20 years and graduated with my Masters from CalArts where I studied horn with Robin Graham and Daniel Grabois in New York before that. I am equally at home in jazz/rock/pop in addition to Classical playing. Before moving to LA four years ago I toured the east coast playing with NYC band Horse's Mouth and was the Principle Hornist in the Sage City Symphony in Vermont.
Depending on each student's goals/needs, we will focus on Classical horn technique, jazz/pop/rock horn, improvisation, orchestra/chamber/solo repertoire, and/or electronic processing on the horn.

I've been playing music for over twenty years as a brass player, pianist, guitarist, composer, and electronic musician. I've studied and performed across the country—starting in Seattle, then New York and the northeast, and finally here in Los Angeles. As a performer, I have trained and play extensively on the French horn, trumpet, trombone, piano, and guitar. I perform in a variety of styles—from classical to jazz and pop/rock styles. As a composer and sound designer, I work in a variety of settings, from composing for orchestra, string quartet, percussion, and groups of all shapes and sizes, to designing sound for theater and film. I earned my Bachelor's degree at Bennington College in Vermont and my Master's degree at CalArts. I play all around LA as a freelance orchestral ...
As a former all-state french horn player with several full ride scholarship offers, I know what it takes to become an excellent french horn player.
French horn is one of the most difficult brass instruments to play because the partials are so close together (you can play many notes without changing the valve combinations) - it requires good ear training and accuracy in your embouchure to play successfully. I've developed several techniques to train beginning and intermediate french horn players.
French horn is a BEAUTIFUL instrument, let's play together!
I grew up in a music store, and learned a love for music at an early age. I started piano at age 3, and just kept adding instruments from there. I majored in music at MidAmerica Nazarene University, where I was on scholarship for Piano, Trumpet and French Horn. I have taught General Music, Beginning Band, and Beginning Orchestra in four LA area private and charter schools, as well as teaching music classes for home-school co-op groups in the Hollywood area. I've been teaching private lessons for nearly 10 years, taking students from ages 4-adult, from beginner to intermediate skill levels. *** Lesson Details *** Music should be fun, and my lessons are geared towards keeping students engaged and excited. I've developed a very out-of-the-box teaching style that takes into account the ...
With almost 15 years of experience playing horn, as well as a B.A. in music, I'm your ideal teacher whatever your level. Don't be scared by people telling you "French horn is the hardest instrument" - I definitely disagree! You've chosen a brass instrument with a unique, beautiful sound; let me coach you in breathing and accuracy and introduce you to the wonderful world of horn repertoire.
There are plenty of piano, voice and French horn teachers to choose from. What makes me unique is my focus on theory and ear training, no matter what your age, experience level or favorite genre may be. I make it fun to learn these "ins and outs" of music, which means you will not only be able to play beautiful music, but also understand it, talk about it, and even compose or arrange pieces of your own! Whether we work together for a few months or for several years, you will come out of my lessons a stronger and more well-rounded musician. As a long-time private teacher and a teaching credential candidate, I have extensive experience with all ages of students and currently work part-time with special needs students. Please feel free to contact me with any more questions. I look forward
I studied with Dale Clevenger at Indiana University for my Masters degree and bring the philosophy of musical goals first and foremost. The most important part of playing horn is sound and I will work with you to get the best sound possible.
My name is Olivier H. I am a horn player who received my MM in Horn Performance from Indiana University and am currently working on my DM. I have performed with Redlands Symphony Orchestra and Columbus Philharmonic as well as being a finalist for Macau Symphony and semi-finalist for New World Symphony. I have also performed in sections with Dale Clevenger, Jeff Nelsen and Elizabeth Freimuth. My teaching style relies on simplifying breathing and focusing on achieving the best possible musical results. I take into account each student's goals and desires and tailor lessons to get the end result they want. I have worked with many beginning students as well so whether your goal is an upcoming school or ensemble audition or just trying to sound as beautiful as possible I will help you achieve ...
I've taught horn since I was 15 years old, and have a doctorate in the subject! I've taught students as young as seven through doctoral students at the conservatory level. My goal is to help each student achieve the success level he or she desires. For beginners, we'll focus on embouchure development and air flow. For more advanced students, we'll work on a lot on ear training and accuracy exercises. Most importantly, we'll work on playing beautiful music at all levels!
