A Vision for 2019-20 School Year Peer Private Lessons
The mission statement of PPL: Peer Private Lessons is an independent organization that provides one-on-one musical instruction by students, for students.
We seek to empower our classmates to enjoy their instruments through sound-focused curriculum and affordable lessons.
PPL exists in service to its community and its people.
We shared our vision in August 2019, two months after the conclusion of the 2018-2019 school year. Our new board has transitioned smoothly and is brainstorming new ideas to grow the PPL community. We have a few goals for this upcoming semester, which are outlined below:
1) Expand PPL to encompass band mentors and mentees: The orchestra program has been running smoothly and acquiring both new students and mentors. We are now working to include high school band students at Huron and Pioneer, creating a position of band liaison. Hopefully, over the course of this school year, we will be able to get band peer private lessons off the ground formally.
2) Communicating the availability of PPL:Early on in the school year, we will be in contact with directors of band and orchestra at the high school and middle school level to share information about our organization. We want to spread the word of the mentorship we provide quickly so that mentees can have lessons for a large portion of the school year.
We are working toward achieving these goals. In August 2019, we published the updated vision above to record our work from now until then. Check back for updated visions as the year continues.
