Guitar Lessons


Lessons are offered before, during and after school according to teacher availability. Each student who registers for private lessons will receive 24 lessons during the school year and a studio recital. If your child plays sports any time of the year, please consider having them take their lesson before or during the school day. Lessons missed due to extracurricular conflicts will NOT be made up. Lesson times are scheduled with the cooperation of parents and teachers to limit the disruption to the student’s academic schedule. Lunch/recess slots are limited. No lesson times are guaranteed; they are assigned on a first-come, first-served basis.

Missed Lesson Policy

Students will receive no more than three (3) make-up lessons throughout the year. Missed lessons will only be made up under the following conditions:

  • Excused Student Absence: The private teacher will ONLY make up an excused absence if the teacher and Music Department are notified prior to the start of the school day. Unexcused absences will not be made up.
  • Teacher Absence: These conflicts will NOT count as one of your three (3) make-up lessons.
  • School Activities: Private music lesson teachers MUST be notified the day before a field trip, visitation, retreat, etc. to receive a make-up lesson.

Note: Extracurricular conflicts do NOT constitute a make-up lesson. Plan carefully when you request your lesson time.
