We will save marching fundamentals for Summer Camp in July.

Private Lessons

We strongly encourage all members of the band to take advantage of private lesson opportunities. Lessons are incredibly beneficial to every student from Concert Band to the Wind Ensemble. They help students grow and improve individually, which is the best and fastest way for our band to grow and improve as an organization. More information about private lessons can be found on our band website along with student applications and contact information for our amazing private lessons staff.
