The musical ensembles at Shipley are active in each division and provide a way for students of all skill levels to participate in music. To more fully enrich that experience, Shipley is pleased to offer the opportunity for on-site, private lesson instruction.
Whether just beginning, intermediate or advanced, private lessons reinforce and augment the work that students pursue in the classroom. Our private lesson faculty are highly trained, active performers and educators in their respective fields. With input from ensemble directors, our lesson faculty work to design goal-oriented outcomes that align with the students’ passions, character strengths, and learning styles.
At key points in the semester, students and instructors record their progress for reflection throughout the learning process. This work gets distilled and framed in each students’ digital portfolio so that evidence of their efforts stay with them throughout their journey.
