Lessons available for flute, clarinet, saxophone, trumpet, french horn, trombone and percussion

Catch up with classmates or even get ahead.  Preparing to move on to middle school or high school?  Want to get into Symphonic Band?  Learning a new instrument?  This is a perfect time for individualized instruction and usually the fastest way to learn.  My name is Kerry Gendron and I am currently a band director at the Francis Wyman Elementary school and at the Marshall Simonds Middle School.  Take weekly lessons or just schedule them as you have time.  I play 15 instruments and am ready to teach this summer.

Where:   1 Pine Ridge Rd, Burlington, MA

Times:   Tuesday – Thursday at your convenience (doesn’t have to be weekly, and I am flexible with the schedule when I                need to be)

Other:     Lessons take place at my residence.  Lessons will be private, but groups   are welcome.  

Price:     $20 per half hour;  $14 each for groups

The Msms is throwing us a cookout on Tuesday, during school. Please bring snacks and drinks and the school will provide the BBQ. It is well deserved. We worked so hard this year!

I’m so happy with everything this band has accomplished this year. It’s been amazing. And I was SO proud of how my students performed “A Great Man,” the piece I wrote to describe my husband. It was such a thrill. The completely unexpected standing ovation truly took my breath away. Thank you to everyone who was there!
