Information on the Donald Lira Lesson Fellowship

 I have been teaching private lessons since 2007. As a teacher, my goal is to help my students become better musicians and increase their appreciation and enjoyment of music. Students of all ages are welcome, including adults who wish to begin an instrument, or return to their instrument after a decades-long break. No matter their age, all of my students are highly motivated.

Traditional Private Lessons

I offer 30, 45, and 60 minute lessons on saxophone, piano, and clarinet, in student homes, or online. In addition, I offer a hybrid fomat for students in Wake county. Each month the student receives 3 lessons online and 1 lesson in-person. Lessons consist of exercises to develop tone and technique, as well as learning repertoire and developing musicality. Other skills and topics include improvisation, listening, and music theory.

Contact me for a free meeting. Private lessons start at $30 for 30 minutes,
