Lessons & Camps

Private Lessons


We encourage all students to pursue private instruction from an accomplished musician.  Lessons make the most of your band investment, typically raising your audition scores for District Honor and All-State Bands (most students in these groups take private lessons).
Contact the directors for a list of private teachers.


Pope Conservatory


The Pope Conservatory is a booster-organized collection of private lesson teachers.
