Private Lesson Staff

If you are interested in private lessons, please contact one of our teachers listed below directly. Also see the contract at the bottom for additional information about lessons. Our private teachers work with band students of all grades (5-12) and at every band campus. Private lessons are a great way to speed up the learning process and to help them gain confidence by working on the specific skills they need help on!
Lessons are $18.00 each for a half hour/half class period. If the teacher has a Masters or Doctorate degree then the price is $20.00 each for a half hour/half class period. Students may also sign up for a buddy lesson, 2 students in the same band class will take a lesson at the same time for half price.
