French Horn

Student-Level French Horns

Starting a musical journey with a reliable, quality instrument is the key to a successful experience. Meyer Music offers brand-name student-level French horns as rent-to-own, matching teacher preferences with free accessories.

Step-Up French Horns

As a player progresses, their instrument should match their growing skills. A student-level French horn is a great way to start a musical journey and a Step-Up French horn will take a player even further.

Meyer Music offers an array of high-end brass brands, including Yamaha and Holton. As Michigan’s only Shokunin Yamaha dealer, their premier level, we also provide access to a wide range of advanced Yamaha options.

A comparison of student level and step-up french horns. Student level horns feature a smaller bore, making it easier for beginners to play; a single set of tubing, which is helpful for beginners as they work on basic technique and intonation; student horns also include all standard components needed for solid and reliable performance. In comparison, step-up horns feature larger bores for fuller sound, two sets of tubing with an extra fourth valve to create a more pleasant tone and better control intonation; rotor valves are fitted to closer tolerances which minimizes air leakage; available in nickel silver construction for enhanced projection and response.
