Interested in the Baritone Horn

Updated: Jan 30, 2023

Talk to almost any band director at any school, and they'll be super excited to hear that your child might be interested in playing the Baritone horn or Euphonium. (A Baritone Horn is often mistaken for the euphonium, but the euphonium has a narrower bore and three, rather than four or five, valves.) A brass instrument is a bit like the trumpet, but quite a bit larger and has a deeper, more mellow sound. It is a member of the brass family and is considered a "middle voice" instrument, as it sits between the trumpet and the trombone in terms of pitch. The differences in the tone quality are because the baritone/euphonium is a conical bore instrument, whereas the trombone is a cylindrical bore. (Generally speaking, the trombone will have a brighter tone than the baritone/euphonium.)

A baritone horn is played by buzzing your lips into a cup-shaped mouthpiece and pressing down on valves to change the pitch. It is typically played in concert, marching, and brass bands and is often used to play melodies and harmonies.

The baritone horn can be an excellent option for a young player because it is not as high-pitched as a trumpet or as low-pitched as a trombone. This can make it a little easier for younger students to learn and play. Additionally, because it has a mellow sound, it can be a fun instrument to play in various types of music.
