Online Private Lessons

Posted by Dean Surface on March 17, 2020 in TMIS with No Comments

Good morning Trinity Band families,

What a crazy turn of events! We hope you are all doing well, staying healthy and practicing safe "social distancing!" We wanted to reach out to you with some specific information on private lessons during this uncertain time.

We are pleased to share that nearly ALL of our private lesson instructors are currently offering online lessons via Skype, Google Hangouts, Facetime, etc for the remainder of the school closure! (Bassoon Families – still waiting to hear back from Mr. Gonzales about this, so hang tight!) We strongly encourage students who are enrolled in private lessons to continue their lessons in this capacity. It is important both for our students and our teachers that lessons continue! You can do this by reaching out to your child’s private instructor (emails listed below) and letting them know you would like to start online lessons.

A few things to know about private lessons during the school closure:
1. As there is currently no way to process payments through the Trinity Springs Band program, scholarships will not be honored during the school closure. Please understand this information comes directly from our Fine Arts Administration, and is not our decision to make. Thank you for your understanding.
2. Payments for these online lessons will be made using a payment app such as Paypal, Venmo, etc. Each lesson instructor will have a different policy for collecting payment, so reach out to them for more information.
3. Students will need access to a smartphone/tablet/computer with webcam & microphone in order to be set-up for online lessons.

Finally, if you have not signed up your child for lessons this year, but would like to try to schedule online lessons now, reach out to an instructor! I am sure they can accommodate you!

It is important that we try to create a sense of normalcy for our students as much as possible, and continuing with lessons in this manner is a fantastic way to do just that! Continuing to play their instrument during this closure is one of the most valuable things they can do!

Lesson Instructors:
Flute – Mary Sanchez (mtr613_)
Oboe – Kira Leeper (leeper.kiraw)
Clarinet – Sarah Seagraves (seagravess95)
Saxophone – Jose Barrientos (barrientosjose159)
Trumpet – Matt Urbanek (matturbanek9)
Trombone – Carlito Chavez (crchavez95)
Euphonium – Blake Birmingham (blakebirminghammusic)
Tuba – Daniel Larsen (daniellarsene9)
Percussion – Contact Chad Mason (chad.mason)

We will be sending additional resources and information regarding further distance enrichment in the coming days. Please reach out with any questions you may have.

Thank you,
Trinity Bands Staff
