Private Lessons are available for all band students in grades 5 through 12. The following are qualified private instructors and most of them teach once a week here at Avon Lake High School. Lessons are once each week and continue through the school year. The instructors are often available during the summer too. Contact them individually to set up a lesson time or contact the high school band director: Joshua.Brunger@avonlakecityschools.org. Include your name, grade, and instrument. Contact the teachers directly to set up a date and time for your lesson. All lessons are weekly half hour lessons for $15-25 per half hour unless you make other arrangements with the teacher. You will be charged for lessons that are missed without at least 24 hours notice.
