Lesson Details

French Horn

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced

I am a dedicated teacher whom loves to help students develop their musical skills in both technique and expression. I have experience with many methods for horn, and will work to find the music which will be the most helpful for the student's improvement.

I also have a great deal of experience in dealing with braces and other orthodontia work as I had extensive orthodontic work done in high school, but was able to overcome this obstacle to keep playing horn.

I can also help with extended techniques for horn (flutter tonguing, stopped horn, and half-valve)

Hi there!

My name is Eric, and I eagerly await getting a chance to work with you! Teaching music is one of the most enjoyable things I do, and I hope to instill the same passion for music in my students that I have!
I have both my bachelor's and master's degrees in music, and I will start working on my doctorate in music in the Fall of 2019.
I have performed with a wide variety of ensembles, including concert bands, wind ensembles, orchestras, brass quintets, and woodwind quintets. Notable examples include the Quincy Symphony Orchestra, Celestial Winds, and the Chicagoland Educator's Orchestra.
