Summer Lesson Teachers

over 2 years ago

Dear Parents of Elementary Band Members:

     Every summer, many of our elementary students take private lessons.  It is important for your child to continue playing over the summer and private study can keep them playing.  Students that take summer lessons will continue to improve instead of getting rusty.  Lessons also reinforce musical concepts we’ve learned during the school year.  We are fortunate to have several excellent teachers in the Brookville area that are willing to take on students for summer lessons.  Please contact a teacher below anytime to set up a summer weekly private lesson for your child.  Summer lessons help develop lifelong enrichment skills.
