Private Lesson Information
We highly recommend private lessons as a way to really improve playing skills and to develop technique in an individualized way. Lessons are valuable to challenge more advanced students, as well as helping students who might need more reinforcement of the skills taught in class. Private lessons are taught both after school and during orchestra class in some cases. Lessons in our area range from $15-25, and are generally taught for one half-hour per week. Please consider having your child participate in private lessons this year, to help them reach their maximum potential on their instrument. If you are interested in getting a private teacher, or would like more information, please contact Mrs. Johnson at email@example.com or 667-3266, or by using the form below.
Summer String Buddy Lessons - available each summer
Whether your student needs an extra challenge, or wants some extra review of skills learned this year, he or she can be most prepared for next year’s Orchestra class by some additional study over the summer. Jenison Orchestras offers five half-hour private lessons with “string buddies” over the summer, (with optional additional lessons to be arranged with the instructor). Lessons occur at the Junior High on Monday-Thursday, between 8am and 2pm. The Jenison Orchestra Parents Association can provide scholarships for students who desire some assistance with the cost of these lessons. (Usually $25 scholarships are provided if requested). Please return this slip by Friday, April 26th.
