Private Lessons

All students in the Melissa Band program are encouraged to take private lessons. Lessons are an important aspect of a band member’s overall music education. The private teachers at Melissa ISD are all expert performers and teachers on their respective instruments and have been carefully screened by the district to include a criminal background check.

Students may take lessons on campus with MISD approved private lesson teachers. The individuals listed below are recommended by the MHS Band Directors and are on campus regularly to teach private lessons. These individuals are outstanding teachers and musicians. We are very fortunate to have them on our staff of teaching professionals at MHS.

Any student not yet taking lessons may contact the teacher directly to schedule a time and complete the MHS Private Lesson Acknowledgement form. Parents or students that have further questions may contact the lessons coordinator, Ken Miller, at, or, 318-289-2750.
