One-On-One Instruction

List of 1 items.

  • Private Lessons

    We are extremely proud of the amazing group of private music teachers who have been selected to teach in the Fine Arts division at Regents. We know they stretch, challenge and serve our musicians every week. One or more of these music educators have simply come because of an amazingly positive interaction with a Regents student musician that they have played next to "out in the world!" We know each teacher adds tremendous value to the program and we hope you will take full advantage of their services during your time at Regents. They love Regents students, their craft and their God and we have seen much blessing from this one-on-one instruction.
    In true Regents tradition, each teacher below will host a recital at the end of each semester to showcase student achievement and will also showcase their own work as an artist as part of the performance.
