I teach hornists of all ages, and have been teaching privately for 6 years! I have a music education and horn performance background and teach based off the learning styles that best meet a student’s needs. I have experience with teaching young and mature beginners, elementary-high school, and college. I love helping students prepare for college auditions and exploring different options as to how music can be a part of their life. A unique process I love for teaching : using my students’ favorite song or artist to build fundamentals on the horn!

About Emily B.

I have been playing the horn for 11 years! I have an undergraduate degree in Horn performance and music education from the Eastman School of Music where I was also nominated for and won a Performance Certificate. I continued on to become the teaching assistant for the Pennsylvania State University (PSU) horn studio and taught undergraduate and non-major lessons while working to achieve my master’s degree in Horn performance and pedagogy.

You can currently find me performing in the horn section of The Orchestra Now (TON), a training orchestra in the Hudson Valley centered around audience engagement, interaction, and innovation. This is my second year with TON and have been performing at Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and our very own, Fischer Center.

I have been teaching privately for almost 6 years. I have started young beginners along with adult beginners, worked with middle school and high school students on district, region, and state band/ orchestra auditions, and helped high schools with the entire college audition process. I have also loved teaching at the college level in varying degrees.

I have experience giving masterclasses at the middle and high school level, and have recently published an article in the Horn Call about my experience with commissioning a work for American Sign Language, percussion, and horn. I love giving chamber and solo recitals, and am familiar with a variety of repertoire.

We love Emily! My daughter is in 4th grade and started with absolutely zero horn experience. She has made so much progress in a few short months! Emily is an amazing teacher and is so kind and patient. We definitely recommend her.

Emily is among the most driven, caring, and enthusiastic educators and performers I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. When you participate in lessons with her, you will find someone who will creatively and persistently address your needs. You owe it to yourself to grab a lesson while you can - because she'll be in high demand as a teacher and performer!

I worked with Emily over the course of two years. During that time, I worked with her individually, in chamber music settings where she was the coach of the group, and in large ensemble settings. Emily is an incredible person, musician, and mentor and is capable of teaching students at all ages and levels. She's acquired a wealth of information through her studies with some of the best teachers in the field. She is dedicated and will ensure that you, as a student, learn how to play the horn correctly and have the best possible experience. I guarantee you will see incredible results upon working with her.

I highly recommend Emily to teach any horn player at any level! She is an incredible player and has a beautiful rich tone all around the instrument. As a professional horn player in various orchestras and instructor at Cornell University and Binghamton University, I can honestly guarantee that you would be very happy to learn from her! She is a very kind person, but also very serious about teaching you to play the instrument correctly. She had been taught by the best teachers out there and you will learn to play the horn properly by doing all the fundamentals needed, but you will also have fun while learning from her! Emily is the best!

Emily is a colleague of mine in The Orchestra Now. She is a welcoming, curious, gifted and hard-working artist and teacher. Emily is always looking for how to further engage with students and audience members. She is a great musician to share a stage with and has a wealth of experience as a mentor to students of all ages and ability levels. Big thumbs up for Emily!!

I studied with Emily during my senior year of high school. I loved having her as a teacher because I felt like she was able to relate to me. I also appreciated how she explained concepts to me. She would use analogies that I hadn't heard before but made it very easy to understand what I should be doing. Emily was very helpful in preparing me for PMEA auditions and my senior recital.

She taught me through junior and senior year of high school and helped me get into college! She's a really engaging teacher and is good at adjusting to different students and their needs.
