Lesson Program

Why Music Lessons?
Working one on one with a master teacher assists student's in tapping into their creative energy. Accelerating the learning process promotes self confidence and discipline to achieve excellence, qualities that will help them strive for success in other aspects of life. 

Music lessons can open the door to more advanced ensemble participation in junior and senior high school and possibly even into college. Individual attention assists inexperienced students establish a firm musical foundation and will provide the advanced musician the environment necessary to grasp and refine the more difficult technical and musical concepts.
