Private study on an instrument is the fastest way to attain individual improvement. It is only through private study that a professional will hear the student play on a weekly basis. Students will focus on fundamental skills that are particular to his or her instrument. These are aspects of development that cannot be offered in a full band setting.
By developing a command of the instrument, the student’s enjoyment increases, and his or her desire to learn fuels future success. Instructors provide individualized assignments and feedback specific to the student’s particular strengths and weaknesses. Private study develops a life-long love of music, places demands on individual discipline, and enhances self-esteem. Much attention can be given to preparing for auditions for District Honor Band, All-State, college admissions, and scholarships.
