Years of experience in performance in various locations around the world have given me insight to be able to teach young beginners how to play the French Horn. My name is Dann ODonnell. I teach private lessons at Westridge Middle School near Austin Texas. I help these budding Hornists with the fundamental aspects of playing the Horn, as well as teach them about music in general. In each weekly lesson held during half of one of their band classes, we work on perfecting music for their band quizzes and benchmarks. During the Autumn, we focus on the District-band auditions. In the Winter and Spring, it’s etudes to further technique, and preparation for Solo and Ensemble. Tuition per half-hour lesson at school is $25, paid monthly in advance.
