About French Horns
The French horn, more commonly called the horn in professional music circles, is a brass instrument made of tubing wrapped into a coil with a flared bell. Pitch is controlled through the combination of factors.
- The speed of air through the instrument
- The diameter and tension of lip aperture
- In a modern horn, the operation of valves by the left hand, which route the air into extra sections of tubing.
Most horns have lever-operated rotary valves, but some still use piston valves (similar to a trumpet). The backward-facing orientation of the bell intends to create a subdued sound in concert situations, contrasting to the piercing quality of the trumpet. Pitch may also be controlled by the position of the hand in the bell, reducing the bell's diameter. The pitch of any note can be raised or lowered by adjusting hand position in the bell. A musician who plays a horn is known as a horn player or hornist.
