Meet your next horn instructor, Kate Warren

Join horn instructor, Kate Warren, in practicing low range techniques. In this lesson learn to play low F, and then play it in a familiar melody. Using melodies is a great way to add more range extension into daily practice. Try transposing simple melodies into other keys to practice even more range techniques.
