Why Take Private Lessons?
In a group setting like your child's Orchestra class, your student will not be able to benefit from the maximum individual attention he/she needs. The private teacher is able to meet with your student one-on-one weekly and meet your student's individual needs, allowing each student to progress at his/her own rate of ability. Unlike tutoring, private lessons are not needed just for those students that may be struggling. Private lessons are for every student. Students that may be struggling can get the extra help to improve, while the average to advanced players can learn more about their instrument, play more repertoire/take advantage of more performance opportunities, and receive instruction to keep them challenged outside of class.

Why Take Private Lessons at Forestwood?
The FMS Orchestra Private Lesson Staff are experienced teachers, performers, and specialists on their instruments. They have been selected by the Orchestra Directors and they have completed LISD background checks. These teachers are highly qualified professionals that work closely with Mrs. McHenry & Mrs. DeHart to ensure each student's success. Private lessons are offered at Forestwood during school, with the occasional before or after school pending availability of instructor, making lessons convenient for parents without the hassle of traveling. LISD has implemented a standard pay scale for all private teachers in our district, which is often more reasonable than rates of private teachers outside LISD.
