Traditional instrumental pedagogy depends to a large extent on printed method books. This notation-based approach of current horn pedagogy can benefit from a supplementary and complementary method of aural and creative pedagogy, which enhances learning of aural skills, creativity, musicality, and technique on the horn. This document provides a step-by-step guide for applied horn teachers that will provide them with the necessary tools to teach students using aural and improvisatory techniques without musical notation as well as to become more comfortable with improvisation.
