Jessica has been teaching french horn to my kid for a year now. We couldn't be any happier with our teacher choice! Jessica is so engaging and so fun! My 13 yr/old absolutely loves her and can't wait for his lessons every week! He has been making so much progress at school because of these lessons, I can only thank her. Definitely the best!!!

Highly recommend her services

Jessica has been teaching piano to my daughter for about 6 months now. I couldn’t have asked for a better teacher for little Maddie. She is so kind and good with kids, they love her! It’s impressive.
100% recommend!!!
Ashley
Jessica has been helping me with my music theory. I want to go to college for music and realized I needed some help with the theory part. I’ve never been really good at it but she just makes it so easy to understand!!! We have been meeting for about 2 months now and I feel like I know so much more already! We meet at her location and she has a few rooms in her apartment complex where we just spend some time talking music! I always thought music theory was boring, but I’m actually starting to enjoy!!

Hired Kristen to help our son Eliot who was played French horn but was really interested in doing drum corps. I have to say, my husband and I eavesdropped on their lessons and Kristen really is a very patient and encouraging teacher. Our son was really happy and even I could tell he improved during his time studying with her. Would highly recommend.
Rachel Choi
Kristen was my horn tutor during my year of study abroad. I arrived in the country with one goal, to march in a drum and bugle corps for my age out year. It would be an understatement to say she really helped me make the most of my musical experience in the country.

I was really impressed. Kristen draws on the richness of her own performing experiences and she has a natural talent for teaching. I always left her lessons with fresh energy, a new challenge and just enough technical and musical direction to be pushing beyond my comfort zones as a musician.

I don't want to hammer the zero-to-hero story, but with Kristen's help I went from no marching experience, to marching on mellophone in a world class drum and bugle corps that summer. It was the most amazing year of musical development, both outdoors and in a solo and concert ensemble settings, and I owe a large part of that to Kristen for her supportive approach, flexibility and, of course, her expertise.

I should add, she's really relatable and I had great fun during lessons. 10/10 would take lessons again if I were in the right country!

Rebecca is fantastic. My son started lessons with her when he was eleven and she formed a rapport with him quickly, meeting him where his interests and abilities lay. He is fourteen now and she keeps him engaged and interested. When the physical demands of horn playing become taxing she teaches theory and composition. She has been responsible for so much of his growth as a musician and a person and is a delightful person to be around, smart, funny and thoughtful. I cannot recommend her highly enough!

Outstanding instructor! Beckie is very positive and encouraging and my son has learned so much in just a few weeks. My son looks forward to his session each week. She is also an amazing musician herself and plays her instrument side by side with my son which allows him to hear and learn the individual notes.

"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!"

"Our son has been taking Horn lessons from Mr. Olivier for a year and a half (our son has only been playing horn for that amount of time) and loves it. Olivier doesn't just teach notes, he always takes care to foster musicality in our son. He has supported and helped our son prepare for All-Districts and Youth Symphony auditions where our son has secured first chair in both. We truly believe our son would not be this successful without Mr. Olivier's guidance. If you are interested in growing musically while mastering this beautiful instrument, he is the teacher for you! Always finding new pieces, and warm-up exercises to keep our son excited! Thank you Mr. Olivier"
