Private Lessons

As students develop their schedules for the year, please consider private lessons for your students. Private instruction can help students improve rapidly and explore music they won't have opportunity to look at in my class. Follow the link below to see a list of options, or use Google to seek out opportunities!



Truly there would be reason to go mad were it not for music.
