All french horn lessons are taught as private, one-on-one music instruction and are available in lengths of 30, 45, and 60 minutes. We suggest kids and teenagers begin with 30-minute lessons and progress to longer lengths as your teacher recommends. For adults who have some previous experience, we recommend starting with 45- or 60-minute lessons.

KIDS & TEENAGERS
Because of the size and demands of playing the french horn, we recommend that students be at least 8 years old before starting french horn lessons. Basics, including music reading, handling the instrument, and breath control, will be introduced to new students. Intermediate and advanced students focus on improving repertoire and technique, including breath control and support, posture, tonal quality, finger dexterity, and articulation.
Students playing in school ensembles are encouraged to bring in their music to work on in lessons.
We welcome adults who have never played the french horn to start music lessons! Beginning students focus on fundamentals, while intermediate and advanced students will focus on improving repertoire and technique, including breath control and support, posture, tonal quality, finger dexterity, and articulation.
