Private Lesson (IMIP) Program

  • IMIP (or Individualized Music Instruction Program) is our private lesson program and it is one of the greatest advantages of being in the Canyon Vista Band! Each student gets one-on-one training from an expert on their instrument!

  • Lessons are offered on campus so that students do not need to travel to another location to take lessons.

  • Lessons are offered ONCE A WEEK before school, after school, during their band class, or during advisory.

  • Students are highly encouraged (but not required) to take private lessons. About 90% of Canyon Vista Band students take lessons!

  • Financial assistance is available to cover half the cost of each lesson!

  • Payment is made directly to the private lesson teacher in monthly pay periods (4 lessons per month).
