So far, I have had only one lesson with Dr. M., the only singing lesson I've had in my entire 66 years of a lifetime. My only regret, is that I did not take them sooner. Dr M. is patient, an expert, and motivational. What more could you ask for when working with a teacher. He thinks he can make a singer out of me; I'll have to trust his judgement. It would be awesome, if he achieves our goal.

Hired Kristen to help our son Eliot who was played French horn but was really interested in doing drum corps. I have to say, my husband and I eavesdropped on their lessons and Kristen really is a very patient and encouraging teacher. Our son was really happy and even I could tell he improved during his time studying with her. Would highly recommend.

Kristen was my horn tutor during my year of study abroad. I arrived in the country with one goal, to march in a drum and bugle corps for my age out year. It would be an understatement to say she really helped me make the most of my musical experience in the country.

I was really impressed. Kristen draws on the richness of her own performing experiences and she has a natural talent for teaching. I always left her lessons with fresh energy, a new challenge and just enough technical and musical direction to be pushing beyond my comfort zones as a musician.

I don't want to hammer the zero-to-hero story, but with Kristen's help I went from no marching experience, to marching on mellophone in a world class drum and bugle corps that summer. It was the most amazing year of musical development, both outdoors and in a solo and concert ensemble settings, and I owe a large part of that to Kristen for her supportive approach, flexibility and, of course, her expertise.

I should add, she's really relatable and I had great fun during lessons. 10/10 would take lessons again if I were in the right country!

All levels and ages welcome! Whether you are playing your first notes or you are preparing for a career, I would love to help you with your horn playing. I definitely emphasize technique and believe that strong fundamentals in breath control, articulation, and dynamic range are so incredibly helpful for the production of the gorgeous sound we all know and love in the Horn. My lessons differ greatly from student to student and I will work with you on any aspect of horn playing you would like to learn and improve.

Bethany is a wonderful instructor! She is consistently caring and insightful, and has appropriately high expectations--which push her students to improve. She was able to help me wisely choose music that would be both challenging and rewarding. I highly recommend her, and I had a great experience taking lessons from her.

"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!"

"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."

"Miss Jennifer has been teaching my daughter french horn durning rhe last school year. She is very patient, goes over the music my needed to learn for UIL and Solo. She takes the time to teach my daughter the piece she needed to learn for school, did some slight reading and work on her tone to get her ready for UIL and Solo. My daughter school band made 1s and my daughter made a 1 in solo. Miss Jennifer is a great brass teacher."

He is a wealth of knowledge and has an excellent understanding of pacing material correctly for the level of student he is working with. My kids were engaged and excited without being overwhelmed. I would absolutely hire him again."

"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."
