PRIVATE LESSONS

Private lessons are encourage for all students! Whether seeking a challenge or in need of some extra help, private lessons can assist each and every student in becoming a better musician. Additionally, studying privately is a great way to discover many of the opportunities available to musicians outside of a typical band class. Many of our lesson teachers can offer insight to a variety of experience including working with and playing for the US Air Force, managing or creating their own groups, composing award winning pieces, and even working on music for video game companies!
