Online French Horn Teacher

I have been teaching French horn for 22 years. I have an earned Masters degree in music and enjoy teaching students of all ages. I am happily married with 5 children at home--4 of them are musicians as well (the youngest is 4).. Students will quickly learn not only the basics of music theory, but will be playing songs as early as their first lesson. It is extremely rewarding watching students have fun, excel, and fall in love with making music. I presently teach music at 3 schools (1 college) and only have a few lessons slots available. I look forward to working with you.

About Doyle

I've been teaching private lessons since 1992 and have loved helping my students win competitions at the state level, learn how to advance rapidly on their instrument, and fall in love with making music. I have 3 earned degrees

Thomas is honestly an amazing musician and teacher. He was really patient with me. Despite having to deal with major timezone differences (as I live in Myanmar), he took the time to figure it out. Also, he helped me figure out the stuff it took me months to figure out. He also really knows what he's doing. I learned so much in that hour of practice. 10/10 would recommend him.

"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!"
