The horn, sometimes called the French horn, is part of the brass family but sits with the woodwinds. In fact, it is kind of like a glue that connects the woodwind family to the brass family. The horn is a long tube coiled up into a circular shape. If you were to unwind it, the tubing would measure approximately twelve feet in length! It is the only brass instrument that you play with your left hand. You keep your right hand inside the end, or bell, of the instrument while your left hand operates the valves.
