In this masterclass, Professor Dale Clevenger makes some general explanations regarding the tuning for this instrument: right hand must be used to manipulate and correct the horn tuning. In this sense, if the sound is too much low, the student should place his hand upper. The student practices this with a passage from the Hindemith's work and Professor Clevenger also makes more theoretical explanations about the three methods to tune the horn.

About the performance of the student, Professor Clevenger makes some corrections on rhythm, dynamics, character, articulation and phrasing. They also deal with attitude issues: the musician should be telling a story all the time and using his fantasy to perform as in an opera.

To finish, the professor gives some indications to achieve the appropriate articulation in a certain passage.
