Students are expected to practice outside of class in order to progress in their playing ability. Students may also be asked to listen to, or seek out recordings as part of their practice.
In addition to a French horn*, students must have the following materials: Mouthpiece Valve/rotor oil Pencil Music the student would like to play, or which we will select based on the student's needs and interests Beginners will need a method book to start out. The method book we use in this class is "Recipe for Success: A Balanced Curriculum for Young Horn Players, by Karen Houghton and Janet B. Nye, available from www.houghtonhorns.com. If this book is not available where you are, contact the teacher to discuss alternatives. *If you need help finding a suitable instrument, inquire at your nearest music store or feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns.
Each student progresses at their own pace. Students are assessed informally, based on their drive, curiosity, and development as musicians.
30 minutes per week in class, and no time outside of class.
