Private Lessons are Crucial for Student Success!

Private lessons are one of the cornerstones of the HP Raider band program. All HPMS/MIS band students are highly encouraged to enroll in private lessons. The HPISD band staff has assembled a fantastic staff of 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 20-30 minutes each and can happen during the school day or before/after school. 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 outstanding musician by teaching them how to improve their unique musical needs. 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.
