Private Lessons at Home
We have developed a culture of excellence in our bands and students want to contribute to our exceptional culture. All this success means our program is growing. In the five years since I took over, we have swelled from 150 students to 223 students in our bands grades 6-9. The numbers are awesome and I'm so happy that I'm able to provide a quality large ensemble experience for your child. Our success has also created an interesting problem. On an average two day class schedule, I work with 315 students. If you add in our jazz band lunch club, that number jumps to 345. I find it difficult to personally connect with all of our band students and to provide them with unique individual feedback on their musical preparation.
This is why I strongly encourage parents to consider private online music lessons with teachers that I have worked with in the past. These lessons provide your child with the one on one personal experience they need to help them really excel. Or, if your child is struggling, it's the chance to get personalized individual feedback to help them be more successful. Your child deserves more and a private teacher can really complete the package: a large ensemble based experience at school and personalized targeted music feedback at home with a lesson teacher.
I have put together a fantastic team of professional music educators from all over the world: San Diego, Portland, Norwich UK, Washington D.C. and Singapore who have several years’ experience working with students in an online format. All have had to deal with our amazing internet on camp and for the most part, have worked out the issues with their students.
