French Horn Teachers

Our teaching philosophy is rooted in the belief that a good musical education not only instills strong musical and technical fundamentals, but also fosters a true appreciation for the arts in general. Our staff and faculty believe in the power of music — music that cultivates self-esteem, self-discipline, and creating thinking skills. This belief creates a positive atmosphere for learning, progress, and fun. All students are introduced to the traditions and styles that influence different compowers to help them build a foundation and deeper appreciation for music.
We offer fantastic opportunities for French horn performances, and all instruments for that matter! Students interact with peers by participating in performances, festivals, concerts, and masterclasses with faculty and other visiting artists.
