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…

Our instructors use Zoom to provide a safe, personal, helpful, and enjoyable learning environment, where students can experience the fun of music at their own pace. Different teachers offer different teaching methods from beginner to advanced. They teach any style of music, while using modern teaching methods, personalized exercises, current songs and positive reinforcement to help the students obtain their musical goals and dreams…

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!
