Private Lesson Information

General Information
Frisco ISD is very fortunate to have an outstanding staff of private lessons teachers.  The private lesson program is designed to enrich and further the level of performance of the musician.One on one individual instruction is one of the main reasons why orchestra programs are extremely successful in Texas. Even though private study is not a requirement for participation in the musical organization, it should be noted that most orchestra students who take advantage of this excellent opportunity progress much more quickly and tend to be the most successful at competitions and chair tests.It is a common misconception that private lessons are for students who have fallen behind on their instrument. That is not the case. While private lessons will benefit those students, private lessons are designed and intended more for students that are advancing and proving successful on their instrument. All of our private teachers are professional musicians. Many teachers travel from all areas of DFW to teach our students. When a student forgets their lesson, does not show up, or is ill and does not notify the teacher, it negatively impacts these people.  After the second unexcused absence (no-show), the private teachers have been authorized to charge a student for a missing lesson without proper notification (24 hours in advance).  With proper notice, teachers can rearrange schedules and not lose money.
For your information:If you are not currently taking lessons, please consider doing so!!!
Mrs. Romo will assist the teachers in setting up schedules and remain in strict contact with all private teachers and students in order to make sure that each student is receiving the best private education.  Remember, private lessons are offered as an enrichment activity and are NOT REQUIRED. To help us continue our success, please consider private lessons as a necessary part of the orchestra program.

Reasons to Enroll in Private Lessons:

  • Desire to learn more about the instrument

  • Desire to move faster than in the classroom

  • Desire to learn more repertoire

  • Opportunity to be taught 1 on 1 by a professional instrumentalist
