SUMMER BAND LESSONS ENTERING GRADE 6 - 12SUMMER BAND LESSONS Entering GR 6-12 The Summer Private Music Lesson Program is designed to provide an opportunity to significantly improve instrument skills. Lessons during the summer are a priceless resource for a young, developing musician. During school, a lesson is only 15 minutes in length and usually alongside several peers, whereas summer lessons are taught individually for 30 minutes. Summer private lesson program members will undoubtedly show a higher rate of progress on their instrument because of the individualized instruction. Watertown-Mayer band directors Vicki Tam-Anderson and Liam Green are offering lessons this summer to interested students. Lessons are open to all instrumentalists entering grades 6-12. Families will be contacted to confirm lesson timesWaitlist
