Private Lessons

Why should I take private lessons?

7 reasons from “band directors talk shop”

  1. Private lesson teachers model a professional sound on their instrument.
  2. Students are able to perform by themselves weekly and get concentrated feedback.
  3. Students are able to focus on supplemental exercises written specifically for their instrument.
  4. Method books written just for their instrument are far superior to band music for developing well-rounded players.
  5. Region/district band auditions can be approached on an individual basis and level.
  6. Instructors give students a chance to play a unique solo that they love at a contest or in a recital.
  7. Private lesson teachers provide a role model for students that can be a strong motivation for students to continue in band and excel on an individual level
 
Below you will find a list of private lesson students for each instrument.
