privatelessonsPrivate 30-minute lessons are offered on piano, voice, and standard orchestra or band instruments to interested students for grades 1-12. (Private lessons for band instruments are not encouraged before 5th grade because of maturation issues.) Lessons are $15 and are charged to your school bill. You may sign up your child for private lessons through the school office. Specific lesson times are arranged with each teacher in light of their free times or the proficiencies and deficits of each individual student. As much as possible they are scheduled during recesses and seat work times or during times the classroom teacher recommends. Adjustments are sometimes made as the year progresses if any sign of academic problems surface. More advanced students can opt for a 45- minute lesson ($19) as time permits. One repertoire, a ministry opportunity, and a recital time are planned for each student. Competitions are, of course, encouraged.
