Experienced teacher of 5 years, specializing in the beginner/intermediate French horn student! All ages welcome. Lessons are customized and catered to the needs/goals of each student. I make sure that my students feel welcome and well-prepared for any goal on the horizon, whether it be the upcoming school year, an audition, or a performance. Students are encouraged to play music that they feel passionate about. I can provide an organized and nurturing approach to the French horn!

About Alana Y.

Hi! I'm Alana, and I'm a professional freelance horn player in Los Angeles. I'm a graduate of The Juilliard School and UCLA, where I was awarded teaching fellowships and received my professional education.

My students can expect to improve week to week in their horn playing technique. Every student brings in a unique set of experiences to lessons; I identify key goals in each student's playing and apply foundational techniques in order to unlock their own individual sound. I can help any student to perform with freedom, confidence, and expression.

As a professional recording artist, I've performed with groups including The Beach Boys, Jackson Browne, and Gaby Moreno. In addition to my live performance career, I also have a blossoming YouTube channel, where I post French horn ensemble arrangements and music videos, and I perform several nights a week on my Twitch music channel.

I firmly believe that great technique is essential to any and every style. I look forward to meeting you and helping you to become a better musician!
