Private French Horn Teacher

I focus equally on fundamentals, tone production, proper air support, intonation and technique.

About Nathan

I have been teaching private lessons for close to 10 years and have been an active performer for even longer, playing in all different types of groups, from rock bands and jazz groups to orchestras and brass bands. I studied music at Frostburg State University (Bachelors) and the Peabody Conservatory (Masters). I can teach just about any age and skill level and cover anything you are interested in learning; whether its a certain style, genre, technique or song.

*** Lesson Details ***
My lessons are laid back, with a focus on perfecting the basics. Most students work out of a method book appropriate to their skill level. Aside from that we'll also spend time learning songs and pieces of the students choice. With the right amount of effort, you'll know your way around your instrument in no time at all

*** Travel Equipment ***

Will provide sheet music and exercises. My students should have a working instrument as well as any method book or sheet music we are working on.

*** Specialties ***
I teach all styles and genres

This is the first lesson I got to listen to of my son working with Nathan. Usually I'm not home from work. I am really impressed with how much he was able to help my son improve so quickly. I wish we had started this much sooner.

of performance excellence, sharing all that I have learned during my many years of experience as a teacher, performer and life-long learner in the wonderful world of music (aligned with the goals and preferences of the student).

Private French Horn Teacher

The Horn is the difficult instrument, and yet we strive to learn it because of beautiful vocal sound it has the potential to create. My goal is to build strong fundamentals with a strong basis of efficient technique with a beautiful sound. Through the study of etudes, scale exercises, and standards in the repertoire we will work together to improve your abilities on the instrument while fueling a love of music that you can carry with you well past your time with me.

I am a professional horn player who has made Baltimore his home for the past 3 years. Born in California, I left to earn my Bachelor of Music degree at the University of Denver. I went on to earn my Masters Degree and a Graduate Performance Diploma at the Peabody Conservatory at Johns Hopkins under the tutelage of Denise Tryon.

While in Denver I performed with the Evergreen Chamber Ensemble, the Longmont Symphony, and the Pueblo Symphony. Since I came to Baltimore, I became the Principal horn of Symphony Number One and I am a founding member of the Old Bay Brass Quintet. I also play regularly with the Washington Chamber Orchestra.

During the summers, I have participated in a variety of festivals and workshops including the Colorado Music Festival, the Miami Music Festival, the National Music Institute and the Rafael Mendez Brass Instit

My passion for teaching takes hold during the Maryland Wind Festival for which I have been on the faculty for the past two years. We perform concerts and give masterclasses to the students and adults in up-state Maryland.

My hobbies include anything outdoors (hiking, biking, rock climbing, etc). I am also a fan of staying in for the night to cook a nice meal and relax.

"Bethany is a wonderful instructor! She is consistently caring and insightful, and has appropriately high expectations--which push her students to improve.
She was able to help me wisely choose music that would be both challenging and rewarding. I highly recommend her, and I had a great experience taking lessons from her."

"Mr. Gallo was very professional. He started out making sure Mackenzie was using the right techniques for breathing, mouthpiece, etc. He wants to be sure y
