Private Horn Teaching
My goal is to teach music and musicianship–not just horn. Excellent horn playing is just one part of being an excellent musician: musicians must develop their skills in all musical areas, including the craft of playing an instrument, listening and awareness of yourself and others, and understanding music in its historical context. I believe that musicians at any level in their training can continue to develop these skills. Not only will you become a better musician, but you will develop a life-long love for music and a passion for discovery.
I have experience teaching beginners of all ages, as well as more experienced musicians. I maintain a teaching studio in my home and I also travel to teach in students’ homes. For more information about lessons, please contact me. All inquiries are welcome.
Here is what students are saying…
“I studied horn under Emily while in college. Above all, I enjoyed my lessons with her. She was very friendly and we got along very well; she also knew I was a busy undergraduate engineering student and was flexible and strove to keep my music studies low stress and enjoyable. However, she still maintained high standards for me and was strict, but fair. Emily continually pushed me to improve my playing abilities and to increase my confidence in public performances. I can wholeheartedly recommend her as a teacher.”
