Private Lessons are Crucial for Student Success!

Private lessons are one of the cornerstones of the Cain Middle School band program. All CMS band students (including 6th graders!) are highly encouraged to enroll in private lessons. The band staff has assembled a fantastic staff of private lesson instructors for your child. Private lessons offer your child a unique experience that he or she cannot receive in a regular classroom setting. If you choose to participate in the program, your son or daughter will meet with a private instrumental specialist once a week at an arranged time. Lessons are 25-30 minutes each and can happen before/after school or during the school day. During this time, your student will have 100% of the instructor’s attention. These lessons will be geared toward helping your son or daughter become a truly great musician by teaching them how to improve their musical skills. While we as a band staff strive to work with each student regularly, we are limited because of class size and time. Private lessons are essential and they greatly contribute to a student’s musical success.
