*COVID-19 UPDATE*
Since Allegheny County is moving to the green phase of reopening, I am beginning to phase in in-person lessons again. Please be aware that if you want to take in-person lessons, they will have to be socially distanced for the time being.

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 ...

Private French Horn Teacher

I am a Horn Player attending the Juilliard School of the Arts. With this whole Corona Virus stuff happening, I am home needing a way to raise money to pay for my education, but I am also looking for a way to keep learning and growing. In addition, I feel that because I am younger it is easier for me to connect with students. However, I know some people avoid younger people because they have a lack of experience, but I want my students to know that I am more than qualified. Having been alumni of several prestigious camps such as Eastern Music Festival and Brevard Music Camp, as well as being a member of several youth orchestras and the Texas All-State Orchestra, I have learned so much. And I would love to share that with a student.

Outstanding instructor! Beckie is very positive and encouraging and my son has learned so much in just a few weeks. My son looks forward to his session each week. She is also an amazing musician herself and plays her instrument side by side with my son which allows him to hear and learn the individual notes.

"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 with Mr. Gallo for a few months, and his progress on the french horn has been amazing and quite surprising! Mr. Gallo is extremely patient and provides excellent instruction that has helped my son develop technical skills to improve his intonation, endurance, and pitch recognition. Mr. Gallo has the perfect balance of guided instruction, positive feedback, making the lesson fun, and ability to push a student further in his playing. I was a little hesitant to try online lessons, but it is honestly the best solution when you have an instructor who cares so deeply for his students and their improvement. I would absolutely recommend Mr. Gallo!"
