Forney Independent School District provides exemplary music education through the ensemble classes. The District also provides individual music study through the Private Lesson Program to enrich and augment what is learned in the ensemble classes. This private study benefits both the student and the overall program in that it can be closely geared to a student’s developmental needs. In such an individualized approach, it is possible to develop a child’s talent to his or her maximum proficiency. We are very fortunate to have professional musicians travel to our district to teach our students. This is an incredibly valuable tool as each student has the opportunity to have one-on-one instruction with these professional musicians. If you select, your child may receive specialized instruction on his or her particular instrument.
Students who desire private instruction will schedule lessons with the instructor at a convenient time for the student and private instructor before school, during the band class period, or after school. This schedule will not conflict with academic subjects.
The fee for a half-hour lesson for the 2019-2020 school year is $19.00. This is similar with other districts in the Metroplex. Checks should be made payable directly to the private lesson teacher. If you need financial scholarship to make lessons possible, please see Mrs. Funk, or email her at
Students may take lessons off campus but supervision, transportation, lesson payment transactions, and any other incurred liabilities are completely the responsibility of the parent(s) or guardian(s), not the director(s) or school district. Parents should closely monitor such situations. If lessons are to occur off campus, please inform the directors we can have record that your child is in lessons.
Students enrolled in the Wind Ensemble and Symphonic Band are required to be enrolled in Private Lessons.
