Horn Startup Clinic:

Middle School and Junior High band teachers -- are you often exasperated starting your students on the horn? Let us come to your school and start your horn players!


The French horn is often considered one of the most difficult instruments to learn. In our experiences as horn clinicians, we believe that with proper instruction you can ensure that your new horn players are set up correctly right from the beginning! Our horn startup clinic covers all the essentials:  
  • embouchure and sound production (breathing/buzzing)
  • posture (including bell on vs off the leg)
  • single vs double horn (and when to switch to F or Bb)
  • right hand position
  • pitching tools and accuracy
  • horn maintenance

Our startup clinic will include one introductory session , followed by 3 follow up sessions, over the course of the Fall term, ensuring good habits are ingrained and your students are making progress. With our startup program your horn students will develop a solid foundation and have the necessary tools to become good horn players.
