Private French Horn Teacher

I've been teaching horn for eight years and my students have gone on to make the all region band at the middle school and high school level. I expect my students to practice daily, as well as do a fair amount of listening to professional horn players. I have many problem solving tricks for horn students that have helped them master the basics of such a difficult instrument. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

Very positive experience. Talked to me to get history and needs. Very helpful. Happy to continue lessons with him.
Corran
When we got there, we could hear Jay warming up, and the sound was amazing. Once we started, he was very positive and explains and teaches things in a way that makes sense to me and makes me feel like I can do this. Confidence has been a problem so far; I'm thinking I might be able to get past that and learn to enjoy playing my trumpet more.

Very patient and encouraging to my son.

Hear it from one of my current students:

"Sara is not only a talented musician but also an amazing teacher. She works with you at the level you are at, encouraging you to push through challenges and supporting you every step of the way. She doesn’t use a “one size fits all curriculum” but rather adjusts her lessons and her techniques to meet your goals and learning style. I can honestly say that I come away from my lessons feeling excited about my progress. It’s a rare teacher that can do that."

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.

My teaching style is aimed more toward children and early intermediates. I like to get kids and teens excited about music, teaching them how to read and technical playing, as well as all the possibilities with playing horn. We will walk through the basics of reading and playing, and I will play with them - so they can see and hear the fingering and tone. I also appreciate questions from students, and discussing the types of horns and discover their goals with music. I would tailor their lessons to focus on their goals however encourage well-rounded learning for them to succeed in any aspect of playing.

I have played in orchestras, chamber ensembles, concert bands and mixed ensembles, holding a wide range of positions ranging from principal to 3rd chair.

I just had an excellent first lesson with Emily! I've never been very patient or disciplined with music lessons in the past, but Emily was so laid back yet focused that at the end of our hour I was kind of shocked at how much I'd actually accomplished. It hadn't felt like the heavy drudgery I hated with lessons as a kid. She managed to keep things feeling casual and playful despite keeping me on track. I'm impressed. I'm playing horn! High recommends for Ms. J!!

Online French Horn Teacher

I teach hornists of all ages, and have been teaching privately for 6 years! I have a music education and horn performance background and teach based off the learning styles that best meet a student’s needs. I have experience with teaching young and mature beginners, elementary-high school, and college. I love helping students prepare for college auditions and exploring different options as to how music can be a part of their life. A unique process I love for teaching : using my students’ favorite song or artist to build fundamentals on the horn!

About Emily

I have been playing the horn for 11 years! I have an undergraduate degree in Horn performance and music education from the Eastman School of Music where I was also nominated for and won a Performance Certificate. I continued on to become the teaching assistant for the Pennsylvania State University

"He wrote us a list of what Erik needs for music, he said that he is going to write some music as well, and recommended us to have our instrument tuned and cleaned. He had his instrument out and ready to play with him when we arrived."

"We signed up when our local instructor moved and no others in town were accepting new students. For context, our high schooler has been playing french horn for 5 years, and has primarily been preparing for district/state solo contests this semester.

Oliver is great. He has provided helpful instruction, advice about performance nerves, and has been super-flexible in scheduling.

Honestly, we were initially a little skeptical of online lessons. It took a few weeks to get into a routine, but now they are working out quite well. An advantage to the online format has been how easy it is to re-schedule when we have one-off conflicts, and it's actually kind of nice having lessons in your own home.

In a perfect world, we would love to take lessons from Oliver in-person!"

"Dr. Merkel is the first tutor we have come across that is honest, forthright and actually TEACHES my daughter what she needs to know to reach her goals. He doesn't just tell her what he thinks she wants to hear to get her to come back next week. He's the real deal. He is a gentle corrector while being stern enough to instill what is necessary to succeed. The difference in her after four weeks with the Doc is amazing when compared to the last EIGHT YEARS she has been playing without his tutelage. We cannot say enough about him at this point and are thankful to have found such an expert!"
