I strongly encourage everyone to take private lessons. The combination of playing in your school group and taking private lessons really helps your student progress further in their musical endeavors. We have listed some of the names of the private teachers in the area , but there are many more you can find at your local music stores. If your student has the opportunity to take the lessons, please do. A private instructor can help your student with individual needs on each specific instrument which in a big class setting, they won't be always be able to get. Many students that take lessons end up being our section leaders and the example in the band or orchestra. Imagine how great our groups could/would be if everyone took lessons. You can also contact your local SJSU Music Department for college students that might be available for private lessons and at a cheaper rate. Feel free to ask Mrs. Chase any questions.
