Hello Students and Parents,

We are starting Private Lesson Enrollment earlier than usual this year! With the current situation, private lessons will be more important than ever. This will ensure that your student receives regular, instrument-specific instruction – a necessary component for success in band. If your student(s) wants to take private lessons during the 20-21 school year, please click the link below and fill out the form provided.


At the bottom of the form, click the “Submit” button and your response will be sent directly to me. Even if you are currently taking summer lessons, ALL students who want to take lessons during the school year are required to complete this form for each year.

In the form, you will see a list of private lesson teachers to select from. If the teacher you currently take from is NOT on that list, please select one of the teachers who teaches your instrument if you know them, OR select OTHER, enter your current teacher, and we will work with you on selecting one of the high-school lesson teachers. Although we will not require you to take from a teacher on our list, only teachers on that list will be allowed to teach on the VHS campus.

Please let me know if you have any questions!


Mrs. VanDoren​
