French Horns

The french horn, often referred to as a horn, is part of the brass instrument family. It is used in a number of different genres of music including orchestral, big band and jazz.

This instrument is designed in a coil shape with a flared bell, and is often tuned to F and sometimes B♭. There are many variations of the French Horn, including a range of valves.

After the cornet and the trumpet, the horn is the third highest pitched instrument in the brass family. It can be played by musicians from all abilities from school children to professionals. 

The mouthpiece of this instrument is described as different from other brass instruments, with the ability to range across four octaves.

Notable French Horn players include:
