Private Lessons

The District 63 Music Department highly recommends students be committed to personal musical development through private instruction. Private lessons are a great way to maximize every student’s potential and get the most out of playing in band or orchestra; they can help:

  • Provide extra motivation
  • Build an excellent foundation of fundamental skills for lifelong musicianship
  • Learn music outside of the school band music, more suited for the individual student
  • Help prepare students for auditions and playing tests
  • Get tips on how to maximize practice time
  • Solve rhythm or intonation problems
  • Improve sound and technique
  • Get students ready for high school

Orchestra students will find available teachers at the Quinlan & Fabish website. The teachers listed below are available to provide private lessons for our band students:
