Organized by the Lassiter Band Booster Association as a fundraiser, the Music Institute is set up to provide private instruction for students of Lassiter High School and those middle school students zoned to attend Lassiter. We hold lessons on campus Monday through Thursday from 3:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. and Friday from 3:30 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. The institute is designed to make quality instruction convenient and accessible in a comfortable learning environment.
Lassiter Music Institute (LMI)
Message to Students
The Lassiter Band has built a tradition of excellence in both the concert and marching band aspects over the years. One area that has helped build strong Lassiter Bands over the years has been private instruction. Private study on an instrument is the fastest way to attain individual improvement. It is only through private study that a professional will hear the student play on a weekly basis. Students will focus on fundamental skills that are particular to his or her instrument. These are aspects of development that cannot be offered in a full band setting.
By developing a command of the instrument, the student’s enjoyment increases, and his or her desire to learn fuels future success. Instructors provide individualized assignments and feedback specific to the student’s particular strengths and weaknesses. Private study develops a life-long love of music, places demands on individual discipline, and enhances self-esteem. Much attention can be given to preparing for auditions for District Honor Band, All-State, college admissions, and scholarships.
