Achieving your fullest potential

What are private lessons? 

Private Lessons are an opportunity for students to grow in their playing beyond what is possible in a classroom setting through one-on-one coaching from a professional instrumentalist. These performers are experts at their craft and have years of experience to give the students. These Private Lessons will focus on everything from posture to personally assigned solos that will help bolster what our students are learning in class.

When are private lessons? 

Private lessons are during class! There is no need to worry about making outside-of-school appointments as most all lessons are done during the class period that your student has orchestra. These lessons will be approximately 21 minutes in length and will take up about half of the class. 

How much are private lessons? 

Private lessons are $23 per lesson. Lessons are highly recommended to be taken weekly, however, if weekly lessons prove to be too much of a financial strain, we recommend all students try to have lessons every other week or at least once a month. This can all be scheduled with the private teacher.

What do I need to do to sign up? 

Many of you already have! Spots are going quickly so please fill out the private lessons interest form and return it to Mr. Geller as soon as possible so we can begin to schedule you with our private teacher. 

We are very fortunate to have professional level performers offer their time and craft to Staley Middle School.
