Online Private Lessons

Learn About Private Lessons

Social distancing is no reason to disrupt music education! We need music now more than ever! Until further notice, all private lessons will be instructed remotely through an online platform. We will return to in-person lessons as soon as we are safely able to do so. With this in mind, lessons will be scheduled such that you may keep your same lesson day & time when we return to instruction at both REW Music locations. We offer either 30 minute or 60 minute weekly lessons.

Please complete the form below and we will contact you to complete your Private Lessons Enrollment.

Location: Lenexa
Who: Open to ALL students
How to Sign Up: In store or over the phone
Registration Deadline: February 22nd

 

--What is the REW Festival? The REW Festival is a wonderful opportunity for ALL levels of students, beginner through advanced, to gain experience playing for others and receive feedback from one of KC's most respected music educators! We put the focus on sharing music with others and ways to improve, rather than creating a scary formal performance environment.
--What happens at the Festival? At their designated time, each student will play their piece (it can be as simple as Hot Cross Buns or as complex as a district/state solo/ensemble selection). The clinician will make notes and comments and then take a few minutes to provide feedback and work with the student in a clinic type setting. When they are done, each student will receive a certificate and ribbon.
--Who are the 2020 Clinicians? We are thrilled to announce that Dr. Luke Johnson, Director of Bands at MidAmerica Nazarene University, and Tyler Harvey, Orchestra Director at Summit Trail Middle School in the Olathe School District will be our clinicians this year!
