Lessons

Instrument lessons (30 minutes) take place once a week during the school day. Students are required to bring their instrument and book to each lesson. Each week students will work on fundamental technique and theory and apply these skills to repertoire chosen for performances. Schedules vary per school and are posted in each student's homeroom.


Practice:

Practicing is essential to developing skill on a musical instrument. Keeping in mind how busy students are, we suggest the following:


1st year students: 5-10 minutes, 5 times per week

2nd year students: 10-15 minutes, 5 times per week


Each practice session should include warming up with the notes or scales learned in class. Then proceed to parts of songs or whole songs worked on in class. Students should also feel free to experiment...try to figure out a song of your choice, by ear. It's fun...and students will enjoy a great sense of accomplishment!
