All band students are highly encouraged to enroll in private lessons, as these offer each player a unique experience that he or she cannot receive in a regular classroom setting. The benefits of private lessons include:
Instruction differentiated to the needs, learning levels, and goals of each student
Lessons driven by mastery of goals, not the time-constraints of a large class
Challenges to go above and beyond the usual demands of ensemble pieces
Instant, individualized feedback to improve playing habits
Opportunities to play music outside the typical marching and concert band styles
Specialized expert advice for each instrument
Students who choose to participate in the program will meet with a private instrumental specialist once a week at an arranged time. Each lesson is 30 minutes and the cost is $20. Scheduling is done at times that work with your school, work, and family schedule. Please contact a band director if you have any questions regarding private lessons.
Financial assistance is available for families with extenuating circumstances. Please meet with a band director about our scholarship programs.
