Instruction


We offer instruction on all band and orchestra instruments as well as piano.

Our instructors have backgrounds in education and/or performance. They have a proven track record of motivating young people to achieve their chosen goals, whether these goals are related to a better command of their school music requirements, or extend further into contests and competitions. The level of mastery desired by the student will be the common goal of both student and teacher.
