French Horn Lessons

french horn lessons

In french horn lessons, technique takes center stage. With a primary focus on honing and refining this essential skill, I guide my students through a journey of musical growth. Establishing a robust foundation becomes the cornerstone for progress, allowing for the development of a solid technical proficiency. Throughout these lessons, we embark on an exploration of the renowned ‘Penzel school’ for horn, a method that emphasizes simplicity and technique. By following this approach, students are able to strengthen their facial muscles and cultivate the ability to play with a well-controlled airflow. Through dedicated practice and a commitment to mastering the intricacies of the instrument, musicians can unlock their full potential on the french horn.

In these lessons we are going to cover these subjects:

  • basic theory
  • sound quality
  • range
  • flexibility
  • articulation
  • artistic quality
