Whether you are just starting to play the French Horn, preparing for the audition for your dream job or college program, or simply want to advance your playing to the next level, I am here to help you accomplish your goals! With years of experience playing professionally, I believe I have the knowledge and expertise to aid you in your music-related endeavors.

My lessons stress the importance of playing with a solid and healthy technique, as well as using our skills on the horn to always communicate a message musically that will impact a listener.

About Roy F.

I am a professional horn player based in Boston, Massachusetts. Prior to moving to Boston, I have been a member of the New World Symphony in Miami for the 2017-2020 seasons. I have had the opportunity to perform as a guest musician with some of the world's leading orchestras, including the Metropolitan Opera, l'Orchestre Symphonique de Montréal and the Swedish Radio Symphony. I also hold the Principal Horn position for the summer seasons with the Orquestra Sinfónica de Minería in Mexico City. In the past, I have had the pleasure of being featured as a soloist, including performances of both Strauss horn concertos.

My teaching experience includes substitute teaching at the Juilliard School's Pre-College Division in both the horn and chamber music departments, as well as mentoring the orchestra program. Additionally, I taught lessons and masterclasses around the US, Mexico, and Brazil. You can hear my playing on the Swedish Radio Symphony's album "The Wagner Project," as well as my performance of Strauss' second horn concerto, which is available on YouTube. I fulfilled my studies at The Juilliard School.
