BAND

We are excited to announce that we have many wonderful private lesson teachers for most instruments that are now ready to begin working with our students!  To expedite the process, we have decided to put you the parent / student directly in contact with the teacher so that you will be better informed on who you are working with and when your lessons will be occurring. 

Please find listed below the contact info for our private lesson staff.  Prices range from $20 for an undergraduate college student, to $25 for teachers with a masters degree or higher. 

Please strongly consider signing up for lessons and making this a priority.  If you are interested in things like TMEA Region Band Auditions, UIL Solo and Ensemble, Porter High School Band Auditions, earning higher chairs within your band class, private lessons is a pretty critical component to helping you reach those goals! 

Just contact the teacher for your instrument to get set up! 

Let us know if you have any questions!  


Thanks, 

PHS Band Staff
