I am a horn professional in oz...Performed with ARMY Concert Band in Sydney for 8 years gone into teaching play everything in a concert band....

I agree with everything clarhorn says...though you if you are still reading this forum...I would suggest patience is a virtue. Horn is there hardest of the brass family the harmonics are closer together meaning your lips vibration of the notes are closer together…that is why there are so many players that have trouble…I suggest you do lots of flexibility exercises “THE PHILLIP FARKAS” book is the best method book it covers everything about playing horn. If you haven’t got the dosh for this practices scales, scales…arpeggios and arpeggios over 2 or 3 octaves till blue in the face then play some music this should be a great start. Most players don’t warm up there instrument the Horn is one you cannot play properly till warmed up…trust me I can pick up flute, any clarinet (bass etc), any sax (Eb, Bb etc) , trombone, trumpet, tuba, but the horn is the one I take the longest to PLAY well…..hope this helps..............happy horning!!!!!
