The ZWMS Band department offers private lessons during band class.  We know parents and students have busy schedules, so we are happy to be able to offer lessons during the school day to help ease some of the juggling.  Lessons last 25 minutes each and the average cost is $20-25, but rates vary among teachers.  Our teachers are all professional performers and educators.  This list of tutors is being provided solely for the convenience of parents and students but should not be considered an endorsement of these individuals and their qualifications.  These individuals are not employees of the Zionsville Community Schools.  However, in accordance with ZCS policy, background checks are run on all teachers.  

Private lessons are offered as a supplemental aspect of the band program that compliments the classroom experience with opportunities to strengthen and progress your child's playing abilities at their own rate.  Working one on one with a specialist on any given instrument gives your child the opportunity to explore his/her instrument in the areas of jazz, chamber music, and solo literature making the band experience one-of-a-kind.  

Our private teachers will be contacting you via e-mail with information about the details for each instrument, however their schedules tend to fill up quickly.  Please feel free to contact our instructors directly using the information below to insure your child has a spot reserved.
