 The Best Gift: Private Lessons
 Parents, want to give your child a gift that will reap benefits? Get your child private lessons. While private lessons are not required to be in Orchestra or Percussion, students who study with a private teacher receive valuable one-on-one instruction that help them advance faster.
At the bottom of the page you will find a list of private teachers that teach during the school day. This list will also be available in the handouts section in Charms.
