@ErinBlue:  You could take her to a trainer, but a part of any type of hound is the howling. Especially because she is young and is just discovering her sound, she probably does enjoy it. I would try contact a trainer that specializes in hunting dogs. However, it’s a part of her breed so I hope that you’re not punishing her. She’s doing what her instincts tell her to do and is alerting you. 🙂

Haha, I have met plenty of beagles who are in love with the sound of their own voice 😛

You could try teaching her to howl on command?  That way she’ll know what you mean when you ask her NOT to howl! We did this with my pit mix and jumping (upon the advice of our trainer) and it worked really well.  Can’t expect him to learn “NO JUMPING!” without teaching him “JUMP!” in the first place!
