Private Lessons

Spring 2019 Private Lessons

Have you or your student wanted to take up a new instrument, learn to sing, or maybe further your musical knowledge on your current instrument? Why not take private lessons?

Private instruction allows for a more personalized curriculum geared to the student’s individual goals.

Who Can Take Lessons?

  • Any middle school student at Chesnee Middle School.
  • Any high school student that is not enrolled in one of Mrs. Brazell’s classes that pertain to their instrument. Meaning:
    • If you are in choir, you CANNOT take voice lessons.
    • If you are enrolled in piano, you CANNOT take piano lessons.
    • If you are not enrolled in any of Mrs. Brazell’s classes, you can take whatever you wish! 🙂
  • Any staff, parents, brothers, sisters, etc.

Lesson Offerings

  • Guitar/Ukulele (must have your own instrument)
  • Piano
  • Voice

All lesson will be given in the choir room at Chesnee High School. Each lesson will be tailored to the goals and interests of each student, while also providing a solid foundation in theory and technique.
