French Horn:
A brass instrument made of tubing wrapped into a coil with a flared bell. The double horn in F/Bb is the horn most often used by players in professional orchestras and bands. Pitch is controlled through the combination of the following factors: speed of propulsion of air through the instrument, diameter and tension of lip aperture in the mouthpiece. The pitch of any note can easily be raised or lowered by adjusting the hand position in the bell. Starting with the basics we would first learn breathing and fingering techniques, notes, reading, rhythms, and songs. As the student progresses scales, theory and soloing will be taught.

Karen is an incredibly skillful teacher. She is very passionate about music and it easy to be comfortable with her. She shares her training and knowledge very clearly. The vocal exercises seem very unique and holistic for body and voice health. She is very encouraging, caring, and soul-uplifting. I feel like I have a new connection with my voice and all that is connected to using it... as an instrument and the journey is only just starting. 45 minutes went by so fast. I am looking forward to my next lessons.

I thought I wanted to take viola lessons. Then I read her website and I realized that she might be able to help me get my voice back! I thought there was no hope ever. She has been extremely generous with her time, and I haven't seen her yet, but I'm not buying the viola I was planning on buying. I play cello, and piano still, but I am going to see if she can help me with my voice. She sounds incredible. I never dreamed that I could even have HOPE like this!

At 40, I decided to pick up the tuba that I’d kept since playing in college. I wanted to get off to a solid start. I found in Bryan a solid teacher with a wealth of all sorts of musical knowledge. I implemented the lessons into practice and felt myself grow stronger in some areas than I had ever experienced in my first 10 years of practice and learning. I was also able to see a marked improvement in my bass guitar skills by applying many of the same concepts to the playing of that instrument. These lessons have been a great investment for my musicianship.
Kunjan
Bryan has very unique lesson plans and can channel his musical thoughts very clearly. He was very understanding and reflective of my needs. He then presented me with a series of mental models and exercises which i am certain will make me not just a better pianist but a better musician and also help me appreciate music better.

I would highly highly recommend Bryan and i will certainly continue the musicial journey with him.

Hello fellow horn players! My name is Emily Toth, and I am freelance musician and private french horn instructor in the greater Cincinnati area. I would love the opportunity to make music with you and help guide you along your musical journey!

My enthusiastic personality, organized nature, and my dedication to a student centered teaching approach has established the foundation upon which my private studio has grown and flourished.

My son started in-person lessons with Emily in the fall of 2019. We went online with her during the Covid-19 shutdown. The two of them never missed a beat (music pun intended)! I feel like he has continued to show good growth as a horn player. Emily does a wonderful job of teaching proper technique while using my son's own interests to keep him playing. For example, my 12-year-old is a Pokemon fan, so Emily found Pokemon theme sheet music for the horn as well as video game themes. He really loved that and I appreciate that she knows how to connect with kids to help them learn a challenging instrument. I am thankful that my son's band teacher recommended Emily and I, in turn, wholeheartedly recommended her to any future horn players.

Very helpful! Emily even spent a couple of minutes past the scheduled time to help my daughter during her first lesson! Looking forward to the next lesson!

Emily is a fantastic teacher! Our daughter has progressed a tremendous amount during her time with Emily, and she really enjoys the lessons. If you are looking for a french horn teacher, I highly recommend Emily.

*COVID-19 UPDATE*
Since Allegheny County is moving to the green phase of reopening, I am beginning to phase in in-person lessons again. Please be aware that if you want to take in-person lessons, they will have to be socially distanced for the time being.

I have been studying horn for over ten years, and learning to play music has truly changed my life by giving me a powerful voice for creative expression as well as by instilling a strong work ethic and the drive to succeed. I am eager to give back some of what music has given to me by passing on my knowledge to others! I received my Bachelor's degree in Horn Performance from the San Francisco Conservatory of Music, where I studied with Kevin Rivard (Principal horn, San Francisco Opera) and Robert Ward (Principal horn, San Francisco Symphony). Lessons with me will be tailored to the individual student's level and goals. Getting my students excited about music and making lessons fun is very important me, as well as instilling a ...

Hi there! I'm Alex and I have had a passion for teaching others for as long as I can remember! My main goal is to make learning a fun and individualized journey!

Some info about me:

I started working with children/youth at a very young age which taught me patience, kindness and understanding. I have worked with families with children ages 1 month to 20 years old, children with special and extraordinary needs, and many different demographic and socio-economic backgrounds. I am currently a High School Special Education Teacher with my Masters Degree in Mild/Moderate Disabilities.

Music has always held a special spot in my heart! From a young age, I explored the musical world until I fell in love with the French Horn. I spent time learning not only in school bands, but in youth orchestras and in the SDSU Wind Symphony as section leader. During my time at SDSU, I also taught private French Horn lessons for 4 years.

I am also a High School volleyball coach (women and mens ...

"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!"

"My son has been taking lessons from Mr. Gallo for this entire school year. He started out not even knowing how to hold the horn or buzz on the mouthpiece. Mr. Gallo has been instrumental in teaching him this year. Yes, my son was in band, but he really needed the extra instruction to be successful with such a hard instrument. What I appreciate about Mr. Gallo's teaching style is he is very encouraging and he is very clear about establishing a good foundation for playing the horn. He knows the proper techniques to strengthen the embouchure and the musical exercises needed to succeed. He has been a very reliable teacher and he was always willing to help my son with anything needed, such as helping him prepare for his solo competition. Overall, I am very impressed with how much my son has learned this year with Mr. Gallo's instruction and he went on to get the highest possible score in his solo competition and more importantly he really enjoys playing the french horn."
