Cello and Bass Lessons

Bass lessons

Bass lessons through the Katy ISD Private Lesson Program will be offered at another high school this year-- it will be either Paetow or Morton Ranch. Please let me know ASAP if you want to take bass lessons through Katy ISD.


Cello lessons

We are short on private cello teachers in the Katy area. I will let you know if any cello teachers have availability. There are some experienced cello teachers at the new Paganini School of Music (Sam's Strings). https://paganinischool.com/
