A single horn has one set of tubing, tuned in F, with three valves. A double horn has two sets of tubing, one in F and one in B-flat, with a thumb trigger that directs air to the B-flat side when pressed.
The single horn is a common beginning instrument, and band horn music is frequently in the key of F. However, the double horn makes it easier to play higher notes, which some players will encounter by middle school. The double or triple horn (with a third set of tubing for E-flat) are standard for orchestras.
The instruments play different due to the different valve setup, so research and try out both types before considering purchasing one.
