Private Lessons

Private lessons and ensembles (band/orchestra) are different experiences. One is not meant to replace the other! In an ideal world, all students would take private lessons in addition to being in a school band or orchestra. Nonetheless, school bands and orchestras include instrumental skills in their curriculum because many students don't take private lessons.


It's easy for a student to fall behind in a group setting. It's also typical for a student to push ahead of everyone else, sometimes losing interest when the class becomes less challenging. In both cases, private lessons would make a significant difference to those students' progress.


FAYM students are encouraged to take private lessons. Strings 4 and Band 4 students are required to have a private teacher for participation in the level 4 ensembles.


Listed here are some local teachers who offer private lessons. Students should contact the teachers directly to talk about scheduling and rates.


FAYM does not offer private lessons as part of their class offerings. Students interested in lessons should contact the private teacher directly and make their own arrangements for lessons.
