Thank You for your interest in private lessons at Bounty Music! We thank you for the opportunity to serve you. The following information and teacher biographies give you a glimpse of what we offer…

Studies show that music education can dramatically contribute to a child’s ability to learn, think and create. Much like participating in a sport, music lessons can teach discipline and team building skills. Music lessons, however, offer several distinct benefits, including a more flexible practice schedule and the ability to continue playing long into adulthood and old age. It may provide a more realistic career path and a great opportunity to earn a lifetime of part time income. As a parent, you are in a unique position to contribute to your child’s success both now and in the future. The gift of music can help you deliver!
