Private lessons are normally based on a "per service" fee.  Some students will need slightly more or less time depending on skill level, goals, and upcoming performances or auditions.  Each session is scheduled in 30 minute time-slots.  Lessons usually last between 20 and 30 minutes.  

High School students who compete at a highly advanced level will be offered the option for one-hour lessons on an individual basis.  To meet the requirements for this level of instruction, potential students must have a proven work ethic toward practice and instruction as well as commit to audition for the TMEA All-State Band and perform a Class 1 memorized solo for the Texas State Solo & Ensemble Competition.
