Fundraising

We are considering a second fundraiser towards the end of the year to supply the school cellos and basses with new strings. Please email michael.wright@henry.k12.ga.us with feedback or suggestions on this.

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!

PRIVATE TEACHERS

Music, being identical with heaven, isn't a thing of

momentary thrills, or even hourly ones.

It's a condition of reality.

Gustav Holst, composer
