Mr. Thompson Begins to offer free lessons after school

Starting this week Mr. Thompson will be offering lessons after school to students that are interested in the help. He began providing a sign up sheet for members interested in working privately or in small groups. Lessons will be provided in 20-30 minutes blocks of time. "I hope this provides motivated students an opportunity to improve their skills. Private instruction can be expensive, but I believe that it is an invaluable resource for younger players so I am offering them without cost to the members." Interested students should find the sign up sheet outside his office at the HS Bandroom.
