Private French Horn Teacher

My take on teaching music lessons are from a K-12 theory to help the student stay engaged. This is why I have half of my work with students be on popular pieces (Radio songs, musicals, movie soundtracks) with the other half of our work being on standard pieces that every student needs to be a successful musician. Both rep. types give me the opportunity to work on technique and style differences that no other format of the curriculum can have.

In addition, I have had lesson teaching technique classes with Floyd Cooley who is a world-renowned brass pedagogue.

About Corey

I am a student at DePaul University teaching lessons at a price significantly below the Chicago average. My lessons are good for students because it provides an opportunity to explore styles of music that the student is interested while also bringing those styles into the standard of Chicago horn p

Corey was super helpful in allowing my daughter to learn how to play French horn. She progressed at an exceptional rate and enjoys playing the horn due to the way he teaches with both "fun" books and classical pieces. She now receives high remarks on solo and ensemble ratings and by her band director.

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.

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.

Private French Horn Teacher

French Horn is a beautiful instrument and has some of the best parts to play in bands and orchestras, as well as small ensembles and even jazz bands.

If you're just starting out or even if you've been playing for a while, you've got questions and I've got answers. We'll work on breathing and tone to get the most amazing sound we can.

Generally, we will start out in the Essential Elements band method but we will soon move on to more traditional French Horn specific methods to take advantage of the uniqueness of the instrument.

Online French Horn Teacher

I am an educator, hornist, and lifelong learner from the Midwest. I hold a Bachelor of Music Education degree from Central Michigan University as well as a Master of Music degree from Indiana University Jacobs School of Music. My K-12 music teaching certifications are held in Michigan and Iowa. During my graduate studies, I minored in early music and music history, specifically in natural horn, which I apply to every part of my music teaching. Horn students get to focus on aural skills and hand horn technique. My private music lessons are taught to all ages, levels, and aspirations. Not only have I taught private music lessons over the past 8 years, but also Elementary General Music, and Middle School and High School bands, so I know what it's like to work with different grade levels.

Prof Jeff Agrell
"Annie gave our (University of Iowa) a terrific hour-long presentation on the history and technique of the natural horn. It was excellent, engaging, and informative in every respect, a demonstration of the skill and knowledge of a real professional. The students greatly profited from her expertise, and I am plotting to have her back soon to teach us more. She is a wonderful player and teacher!”
Sherri
We hired Annie to teach private French Horn lessons to our daughter after the school year was cut short due to the pandemic. After just a month of lessons, she was playing with more confidence, enthusiastic about practicing(!), and expressing pride in her progress. Annie has excellent communication skills, is a natural at teaching kids even in the virtual (via Zoom) environment, and takes a sincere interest in her students’ development and overall well-being. Best money we’ve spent on music yet!
