Teaching Reviews:

"Working with Breanna has been wonderful. She is flexible in terms of planning lessons and adjusting times when necessary. Lessons are always energetic and encouraging even when I am struggling. She is creative with different exercises and definitely knows her stuff when it comes to reference material and choosing a piece to work on. Also, getting to hear her play in several concerts has been really cool. I came to her as a terribly rusty but fairly experienced player looking to pick my instrument back up and she has been a great help. I've learned a lot and I'd happily recommend her." - Ariel K., horn student

"I found Breanna last year when I was searching for an online instructor for my 6th grade daughter. My daughter was a complete beginner at the French horn so I needed an instructor to teach the basics at first. Breanna is a perfect fit for us. She taught my daughter how to play all the notes and she also taught her proper techniques on how to hold the horn, airflow, etc. My daughter is now in 7th grade and we are still working with Breanna. We have progressed on to more challenging pieces of music and Breanna teaches her with ease. In addition, we are a very busy family, and Breanna works with us to find the right time each week that fits with our schedule. I would highly recommend her as an instructor." - Jennifer, H., mother of horn student

Playing Reviews:

"The other motif representing Till is the famous laughing French horn call heard a number of times through the work: Breanna Ellison was flawless in execution and vivid in characterization."
- Boston Musical Intelligencer

"And again, there were wonderful solos, especially from Breanna Ellison, who intoned the essential horn part with nobility."
- Boston Musical Intelligencer

"...that of the very low notes of the fourth horn part in the Overture to Der Freschütz [were] excellently sounded by Breanna Ellison."
- Boston Musical Intelligencer
