Learn Elementary or Intermediate Level French Horn with an Experienced and Patient Teacher!

Hello, and welcome to my music studio! If you are a beginner, I recommend you start with 30 minute weekly lessons. More advanced students often choose to have 45 minute or 60 minute lessons, depending on their goals. I have been teaching French horn professionally for over 6 years and I specialize in the elementary and intermediate levels of the instrument. I use a differentiated instruction method in my lessons which centers around tailoring instruction to meet individual student needs, interests, and goals. Instruction varies based on the type of learner, the age of the student, and whether or not they have prior experience. In private lessons, I teach students about basic theory, ear-training, sight-reading, scales, proper breathing, embouchure development, and much more. I will help students prepare for school-related events such as District Band auditions, Solo and Ensemble Festival, and coach them as they advance through middle and high school band and/or orchestra. A little about me: I began private French horn lessons at age 11 and continued lessons until age 17. I currently teach online and in-person music lessons in the DC/Northern Virginia area. I have played horn in ensembles such as the Manassas Ballet Theatre Orchestra and the Capital Wind Symphony. My current and past French horn instructors include Geoffrey Pilkington (Kennedy Center Opera House Orchestra), Dr. Eric Moore (U.S. Navy Band), Philip Munds (Orchestra of the Royal Opera House; Baltimore Symphony), and Kelly Satterwhite (U.S. Army Band).
About Victoria C.

Hello and welcome to my online music studio! My name is Victoria and I am a professional piano and French horn teacher based in the Northern Virginia/Washington, D.C. area. I completed my graduate studies in Horn Performance from the Catholic University of America and have over 20 years of piano playing experience. I have had 6+ years of professional teaching experience with both horn and piano. In lessons, I teach my students about basic theory, ear-training, sight-reading, scales, proper breathing and embouchure development (French horn), and much more. I will help students prepare for school-related events such as District Band auditions, Solo and Ensemble Festival, and coach them as they advance to higher levels of band and orchestra within their school. I have played with ensembles such as the Manassas Ballet Theatre Orchestra, the Capital Wind Symphony, and have been a piano accompanist for events such as Solo and Ensemble Festival and for student recitals at Western Kentucky University. My current and past instructors include Geoffrey Pilkington (Kennedy Center Opera House Orchestra), Dr. Eric Moore (U.S. Navy Band), Philip Munds (Orchestra of the Royal Opera House; Baltimore Symphony), and Kelly Satterwhite (U.S. Army Band). In addition to my graduate-level education, I hold a Bachelor's degree in Graphic Design from Western Kentucky University.

VIctoria has been very flexible with time and has been remarkably patient with my extremely erratic six-year-old. It's been a joy to work with her.
