Private instruction is the single most important investment you can make in your child's musical education beyond the instrument itself. Given the very high number of students enrolled in the band program, there is no realistic way that every playing problem can be resolved during the course of a normal band class. Our program's excellence is in large part due to a high percentage of students studying privately, including over half the Wind Ensemble (the advanced high school band). Check out the following list of teachers and see if you can work out a schedule! Fees vary from teacher to teacher, but all on this list charge reasonable fees for their talents.
PLEASE consider investing in lessons - your child will experience a much higher level of success in band!
(This list is by no means comprehensive; please email Mr. Pettit at email@example.com and let him know if there are names we should add or if you discover that someone listed here is no longer teaching in the area.)
