GLMBA administers a Private Lesson Program designed to offer band and choir students extra-curricular music instruction from sepecialized instructors.
Private lessons will help the student to acquire the necessary skills for full enjoyment of music through their instrument. Each individual instrument has its own characteristic problems and each student approaches these problems differently. Private lessons will help the student to eliminate these problems and allow them to progress at their own speed and level. Please note that this is not a money making project, nor is it a requirement for participation in the instrumental program at Grand Ledge.
