Private Study

The Band Directors highly recommend that students take private lessons.  Private lessons are appropriate for students of all ability levels, from the very beginning level through the most advanced.  These lessons allow students one-on-one attention with a specialist on their instrument, resulting in more specific instruction than what is possible in a large classroom setting.  For additional information or a recommendation specific to your student, please contact your son/daughter's band director.
