Private French Horn Teacher

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 belief in the benefits of hard work and diligence.

Phillip was on time and professional, introduced himself and coordinated with us appropriately. His first lesson made our twelve-year-old feel comfortable and she really got a kick out of when he asked her what she thought SHE needed to work on. He did a wonderful job expressing her creative outlet and was very comfortable in the mechanics of the French horne. Would recommend any time!

Steve is a great. He has helped my beginning trumpet player build confidence in her ability. He always takes the time to explain why trumpet players do certain things, which has really helped my daughter. She looks forward to trumpet lessons every week.

"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."

"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!"
