Horn (musical instrument)

A modern French horn

The horn is a brass instrument. It developed from the horns that some animals have on their heads. Modern horns are often called French horns.

The hunting horn

Horns were often used during hunting. These early brass instruments were round so that the hunter could put his arm through it and carry it on his shoulder and blow it while riding a horse. The riders could send messages to one another by blowing particular notes.
