The Tenor Horn is often preferred by young beginners from the age of 8 yrs, as it is not heavy and easier to hold than the Euphonium and Baritone Horn.
Available with 3 or 4 valves the Tenor-horn is allegedly the easiest of the brass band instruments on which to form an embouchure that will provide a suitable working tone.
The Tenor horn is a valved brass instrument (in E flat) which has a predominantly conical bore like the euphonium and flugelhorn. It uses a deep cup-shaped mouthpiece. The Tenor horn's conical bore and deep mouthpiece produce a mellow, rounded tone which is often used in Brass Bands as a middle voice,
supporting the melodies of the cornets or flugelhorns, and filling the gap above the lower tenor and bass instruments
The range of the Tenor horn (expressed in concert pitch) is from the A an octave and a minor third
below middle C to the E♭ an octave and a minor third above middle C (A2 to E♭5). Experienced players
can reach at least major third higher than this. Additionally, as the Tenor Horn is a whole-bore brass instrument, most players can play some pedal tones.Better general accuracy is possible on a Tenor Horn. As a shorter instrument with piston valves the tenor horn has more clarity of mid-range technique than
Euphonium or Baritone Horn.
