BAND ARTS PRIVATE LESSONS

GRADES 4 and UP

Band-Arts gives bands students the opportunities to expand their skills and achieve their musical potential. Studies prove that children who study music in school do better in academics, social connectedness, and emotional health, while learning to express themselves musically. Often, elementary school music programs lack the funding to provide the quantitative and qualitative learning that unlocks this potential. 

 

Our program is designed to enrich your child's training so they can enjoy greater progress and confidence in school band.  Whether their interest lies in concert band, jazz band, marching band, or symphony, a YACM admission will augment their learning with excellent training. 

Admission to Band-Arts is open to anyone in band or students don't have a band program at school. Each student must have their own instrument.
