 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.

For performance tests, you may send it through SmartMusic. If you have not sent it to me by the due date, you will need to do it in class that day.
