French horn: audition and classical music jobs

A common choice for a variety of musical genres, particularly symphonic bands and the orchestra, is the French horn. It is highly favored for its mellow, marginally less brash sound, and it stands out loudly when combined with other instruments. Without the right information, choosing the best French horn can be a mixed bag of experience, especially with all the endless options saturating the market.
Jobs for French horn players include both teaching and tutoring positions and performance roles. As a teacher, you can work in a high school or university where they provide formal instruction in the French horn. You can also teach or tutor at a music school or offer private lessons for students who want to learn or practice the instrument. Your duties vary depending on the level of the students that you teach. If you perform with the French horn, you can play during live performances or participate in recording sessions. Some French horn players have both teaching and performing responsibilities.

The qualifications that you need to get a music job as a French horn player include skills in your instrument, a fine arts degree, and experience teaching or performing. College-level teachers need at least a master’s degree, while high school teachers need a bachelor’s degree and a teaching license. Private music school teachers and tutors need a degree or equivalent experience. Orchestra performers typically audition, and some employers expect you to submit audio files of past performances. Performers typically have a degree from a music conservatory or university, but this is not technically mandatory.
