The french horn is a the hardest instrument in band to play.
Debate Rounds (3)
Second let us speak of woodwinds. Woodwinds do not have to move their lips to tune to the other instruments while the French Horn has to tune to every instrument its part accompanies.(Usually the French Horn is a middle man meaning it plays along with another part). Third let us speak of the percussion. While they do have to play complicated rhythms the French Horn plays complicated rhythms along with going from the lowest to the highest notes for its range of notes. If con can prove that their is a harder instrument to play than the french horn than he/she wins. Good luck and may the odds be ever in your favor.
Firstly I believe we must cite all sources.
Secondly forfeiture is not allowed unless you have a "really good" excuse to back it up. (Weather it's a good excuse or not will be judged by the other debater)
Now I will get into my debate. I will start on the first round as you have also.
Hard, in this sense means difficult. If I can refer to "hard" as most difficult I believe this will be significantly easier.
Difficult - hard to do, make, or carry out
This is the Merriam Webster"s definition on difficult. When something is the most difficult it is the most hard to do, make, or carry out. However this is for a singular being. If I was to start my musical career with the French horn and got used to having a small mouthpiece, tuning and playing both high and low notes I may find another instrument quite difficult.
Furthermore I have come to know that certain instruments have certain embouchures (the position your mouth makes when playing an instrument). I personally play the clarinet with a certain embouchure. However earlier in the year I have tried playing a flute and it was quite difficult for me. But to a flute player it was quite an easy experience. This was because of the embouchure.
These are the reasons why I believe that the French horn is not the hardest instrument to play.
You also didn't specify at what time the French horn would be the hardest instrument to play. It could be at any given time. Therefore if one was to be a master at the French horn then they would not believe the French horn is the hardest instrument to play.
Finally my embouchure point is still quite valid. Certain embouchures are easier to replicate than others. For example a flute embouchure is quite different than a clarinet embouchure. However a tuba embouchure isn't much different than a French horn embouchure.
Your statement can not be correct as you have a lack of information and your point is quite broad.
Thank you for the interesting debate and may the best debater win.
