Piano Lessons - Julie Pierce                                       All Grades, Every Day

My name is Julie Pierce and I'm excited to be able to offer piano lessons at St Paul this year. I received my degree in Music Education, with piano as my principle instrument, from the University of Michigan in 1992 and have been teaching piano, music directing and singing ever since. Learning the piano can be a great springboard to a lifetime experience with music! It would be a joy for me to be on part of that musical journey with your child.

Time: ½ hour lessons, time and day to be arranged with instructor

Fees: $25/half hour lesson

 

Guitar and Ukulele Lessons - Austin Netherton                                              All Grades - Monday, Wednesday, Friday

During lessons students will learn about scales, chords, reading music, and how to play with other musicians. We will also have the opportunity to learn some of the students favorite songs. We will use these songs to learn about new chords, strumming patterns, improvisation, theory, and songwriting.   
 
My goal is to take some of these more complicated aspects of guitar and make them easy to understand. This way the student can have fun and develop a love for music!

SNAG Golf (‘Starting New At Golf’) is the best first/early exposure program to effectively teach the game of golf to people of all ages and ability levels. It makes golf easy to learn and FUN to play!

SNAG is a proven player development program designed for new (or returning) learners of all ages. SNAG contains all the elements of golf in a modified form, making it an easy and fun way to learn and play golf. The system builds on the strong fundamentals of putting, chipping, pitching and full-swing with developmentally appropriate equipment and instruction that allows golf to be learned in non-traditional venues, such as a gym, and for playing abilities to be developed quickly and effectively. SNAG has its own simplified rules and terminology that adds FUN to the learning and playing experience. The game of golf is built on qualities that transcend the sport, such as good sportsmanship and respect, and knowing the fundamentals of the sport can be a lifelong asset for your child to develop now!

Programs are offered by fellow St. Paul parent and PGA Golf Professional, Tim Strickland. Tim has over 20 years of industry experience and loves teaching people of all ages to love the game of golf.
