Private French Horn Teacher

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.

I am a musician with expierence playing with professional orchestras and chamber groups. I have spent 5 years teaching privately and held positions teaching in the public schools. In my lessons we not only focus on having good sound, technique, and musicianship but also having fun while playing the instrument! It is my goal to bring the students personality out through their music.

Mr. Phelps is an outstanding instructor! He worked with my large group, small group, and private lessons students. As a band director, I truly appreciated his professionalism and demeanor with all of my students of all ages and levels - very supportive and very encouraging. His lesson are high-energy and up-tempo, the kids loved it! Chris is an excellent choice for lessons. I highly recommend him!
John
Chris was a great teacher and help to our daughter. He was also very flexible with our schedule and often helped us move the time to fit perfectly...on Sunday no less! Within a short time both her band leader and us could hear the difference in her performance. Super nice nice guy too and that’s coming from a Gators fan (if you follow college football you will understand this). Best of luck up there Chris!

He has a good ear and can help quickly with transcriptions. More importantly, he also gave some practical advice.
Ami K.
My son enjoys his music lessons with Jonathan, who is infinitely patient teaching what can be a challenging instrument. My son responds well to Jonathan's instruction, and he appreciates having access to a professional performer as a teacher. Jonathan encourages my son to learn a variety of music, including both challenging classical pieces and more recognizable popular and jazz pieces, which helps to sustain his interest in the lessons.

"Olivier has without a doubt helped my daughter improve in ways that I (as a former French Horn player) could not. He is patient and pleasant as well as intelligent. Most importantly he has given my daughter the necessary tools she's needed. He doesn't just say "play higher" or "do it again". Instead he tells her exactly HOW she can get better and exactly WHAT techniques she needs to do to improve. I have seen a noticeable difference in 8 lessons and look forward her future success with Olivier."

"My son has had Oliver as an instructor since Jan 2020. He has been excellent!

Oliver has been great at teaching my son technical improvements for better french horn sound.

Moreover, I set up an University professor friend of mine to talk to Oliver to learn how to do online music lessons.

He's been great!!"
