Private French Horn Teacher

I have 21 years of experience teaching middle school through high school band students. I have been a head band director for all 21 years, with many students earning music scholarships, receiving superior ratings at solo and ensemble festival, as well as positions in all-region and all-state band. My bands have been known for playing well, being selected as an Oklahoma Music Educators' Association Honor group as well as the Music for All National Festival. I am hoping to help students who do not have band classes now due to the school closures but am happy to teach anyone interested. Students will find me patient and engaging. I absolutely love band and can't wait to teach you or your child!

Craig Amendt is a fantastic teacher. He was my first band teacher ever and taught me private lessons for the first few years on my instrument. He instilled a love of music in me that carried me all the way through college and is still huge part of my life. I’m now a music educator as well and it may have never happened if Craig hadn’t been my first teacher. I highly recommend Craig as a teacher because he is passionate and dedicated, and he will give you the tools to be successful no matter what age or level of player that you are.

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.

Kelly S.
Karen was not prepared for the lesson. She spent 15 minutes trying to send me photos from a beginner Tabla book available on Amazon. She did not own a set of Tabla drums. She ensured me she could teach anything, but could not pronounce the words used for proper Tabla technique, knew no history and could not even teach me to tune. She literally was reading out of the book figuring it out along the way. I lost a lot of trust from this and asked for a full refund for future lessons.
Erika H.
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.

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.

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."

"Mr. Gallo has been teaching me for over 6 years now and has made me an amazing French horn player. I started off without knowing how to play the instrument let alone a proper note and transitioned into playing the horn in 4 registers with quality sound. He's also help me make drum corps like the blue knights and the blue stars."
