Q: Should I consider private lessons?

A: Private lessons are a good way for students who need an extra challenge to get some one-on-one teaching and be able to progress faster than they otherwise would.  It is important to find a teacher who will challenge the student, support what they are learning in band, and have a good rapport with the student.  Please email me and I would be happy to help you find a private teacher.
