Private Lessons

All DMS band students (including 6th graders!) are highly encouraged to enroll in private lessons. I am currently working on assembling a fantastic staff of private lesson instructors for your child. Private lessons offer your child a unique experience that he or she cannot receive in a regular classroom setting. Lessons can be anywhere from 30-60 minutes and usually meet once a week. During this time, your student will have 100% of the instructor’s attention. These lessons will be geared toward helping your son or daughter become a truly great musician by teaching them how to improve their musical skills. While I strive to work with each student regularly, I am limited because of class size and time. Private lessons are essential and they greatly contribute to a student’s musical success and get ahead. It is an investment in your child's musical future. They are the best means of developing the refine, mature playing habits that help students earn placement in District Honor Band, All-Sate Band, and even college scholarships. Most All-State members begin private instruction at an early age and practice diligently for years to achieve that honor.
