Private French Horn Teacher

Want to learn how to play the Horn? My goals as a teacher are to make a judgment-free teaching environment with an emphasis on support and to further your own goals. All ages are welcome! Lessons will be catered to each student and you or your child will build a strong foundation that can be applied to all things in life! Send me a message and let's get started.

We will use a 2-1 approach to constructive criticism, where for every possible improvement, we will say two positives. At times, we will use singing as a tool to figure out everything from melodies and rhythm. I also believe heavily in making music fun and enjoyable and loving our own sound. The types of repertoire we will explore include and are not limited to: solo music, concertos, etudes, calisthenics, orchestral repertoire, and duets.

Xi is VERY knowledgeable of the art of horn playing. I understand what she is saying without difficulty. She knows what she is doing and her skill in teaching is above average. I’m so thankful to have found a teacher who respects where I am at 54 and how to help me get back in the game. The work is up to me of course, but she been very real and encouraging along the way. Well done!

I wanted to wait for the second lesson to write my review for Tristan as it was I feel more representative of him as a teacher. I felt he used the first lesson more to learn about me and my level and he did alright in that lesson but in contrast he came to the second lesson with an agenda, clear goals and expectations and came across as confident and knowledgeable. He brought a great energy and enthusiasm and was very supportive and I have great confidence in him as a teacher.

Greg
One of the most talented musicians I have ever met. While trombone is his main instrument, he plays and instructs exceptionally well on a myriad of other instruments. He is calm and patient with learners and has a very rich knowledge base when it comes to musical literature and technique. I highly recommend Justin Hammis for anyone interested in private lessons.
Jessie
He was band director for my kids. He is a terrific person and a fun, talented director.

"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!!"

He started out making sure Mackenzie was using the right techniques for breathing, mouthpiece, etc. He wants to be sure you know the correct method from start to finish and doesn't just teach you the notes/music. We were very pleased with his teaching method. Thank you."

"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."
