Private Lesson Teachers  

Private lessons serve as an outstanding supplement to the daily instruction received in band. They enable the student to progress more rapidly because of individualized, one-on-one instruction. Excellent private teachers take the student to the next level. Private lessons are primarily aimed at individual development. Frequently, this is where “superstar” players develop! Students that take private lessons are often the ones who receive college scholarships in music.
