You you want to to learn how to play French Horn at a high level from the basic of the basics to advanced college and professional-level repertoire, you have come to the right place! I have been playing French Horn for 20 years and have earned many accolades and awards including placing in the Texas All-State Band, playing with two well-known youth orchestras, and receiving generous scholarships and grants in college that allowed me to attend school FOR FREE! Since college, I have taught consistently for 7 years and have seen wonderful results from my studio. My students feel confident in their abilities, grow at an accelerated rate, and become self-sufficient, self-motivated practicing musicians who are not afraid to strike out on their own.

Are you a brand new beginner who has no clue where to start? Are you someone with a little experience that still needs some guidance? Or maybe are you an advanced player who is not being sufficiently challenged and needs some "oomph!" in your horn-playing life?

Contact me to set up a trial lesson and see if we're a good fit for each other! I can't wait to meet you and get hustling!

About Katie R.

Hi! My name is Katie Rios and I have been playing French Horn for 20 years now. I am passionate about all kinds of music and have been head-over-heels in-love with playing and singing ever since I was little.

I received many awards and accolades for French Horn in high school and went on to study Orchestral Performance on French Horn at the University of Texas at Austin with Prof. Patrick Hughes. I received enough scholarships to go to college absolutely FREE! I learned so much and played with some amazing groups and even got to tour around the world with the Wind Ensemble. We literally went ALL the way around the world from Hawaii to Asia to London and back to the US!

After school, I began teaching and fell in love with music all over again. I am always so excited to meet new students and watch them grow as horn players. My goal is to start with a firm foundation for my beginners, drill fundamentals to work through the challenges of middle school, and start introducing advanced repertoire in a fun and accessible way in late middle school and early high school.

We always have fun in lessons, but most importantly, I push all of my students to stretch themselves and learn how to practice what we do in lessons on their own. We will learn core exercises and fun games to keep you in shape as well as develop your range of abilities. No matter what your level as a player, I can help you reach your goals. As someone who has played the full spectrum of beginner to advanced repertoire, I know what it takes to be a confident, solid player.
