FROM THE SYMPHONY'S PROFESSIONAL MUSICIANS

Orchestra

The "Core Musicians" of the Great Falls Symphony serve as principals in the orchestra and make up the Cascade Quartet and Chinook Winds. They live, perform, and teach students of all ages in Great Falls, and they have extensive professional experience as performers and educators.

Your child has the opportunity to take one-on-one lessons with a world class musician!

Contact us today about studying with a Core Musician.

 
For students showing a keen interest in music, all music education professionals recommend ​starting private music instruction as early as possible.
 
Studying with a private teacher is a part of every student musician's growth because they help students grow as disciplined individuals, and they love music even more.

WHY 

PRIVATE LESSONS?

Violin Class
  • Private instruction is not tutoring. It benefits all students, and can be especially motivating to gifted students.

  • Private lessons allow one on one time with a professional who actually plays the instrument.

  • Advanced skills are taught [in private lessons] that can't be touched on in traditional music classes.

  • Greater variety of music literature keeps kids interested and practicing

  • Private lessons allow for more opportunities for performance and advancement (Youth Orchestra, All State Festivals, Invitational events).

  • Private study makes the school-based ensembles stronger as more kids will have advanced techniques.

Piano Lesson

  • What are your expectations of our child and of us?

  • In your studio, what is the parent’s role? How do you communicate with parents regarding progress, assignments, etc?

  • How much do you expect students to practice?

  • What is the make-up policy?

  • Are there performance opportunities?

  • What teaching experience do you have and what is your approach to teaching?

  • Are you also a performer on the instrument you teach?

  • What kind of goals would you set for my student, musically and otherwise?
