All Region 15 music students are eligible to take part in the Visiting Artist Program. The Visiting Artist program provides private instruction for music students in the Region 15 Schools. Instructors are professional musicians that specialize in their instrument or voice part. As music students grow, so do the skills required to perform well.
Since the lessons are offered at PHS, they are both economical and convenient. Participating in this program will improve your playing and make you feel more confident, thereby providing you with more enjoyment and greater fulfillment on your instrument.
