I agree that the trombone is a bit harder in some aspects than the french horn. Just some thoughts, how is your embouchure. Most hornists I believe use 2/3 upper lip and 1/3 lower lip inside the mouthpiece as well as the pucker/smile embouchure (at least thats what I was taught, and use with great success on the trombone). Do some googling on french horn basics like embouchure, distance between your upper teeth and lower teeth (on trombone you take the shank of the mouthpiece and bite down to determine about how wide to keep your mouth open), and fingerings/pitch tips. Also perphaps voice your concerns to your teacher. Tell him/her where and with what you are struggling, and maybe ask them to explain it differently if the answer still eludes you. Their job IS to teach, so they should be more than happy to accomodate. Also practice often. No amount of thought or research can replace good solid practice. Good Luck!!!
