Private Lessons

All students wishing to take a private lesson on their instrument or voice will have the option of registering for a 30 minute lesson. High school students only may request one full hour of private study if they so choose. The fee for one half-hour lesson is $25. A one-hour lesson is $50 and is available only for students in grades 9-12.

Students are required to bring prepared music to work on in the lesson. Due to the need to contract instructors prior to the camp opening, private lessons must be requested in advance and fees are non-refundable. To request a lesson, please fill out the private lessons section of the registration form. The camp director must approve requests for lessons in more than two areas.
