Frequently Asked Questions

Why should my child play an instrument?

Do I need my own instrument?
Yes. It is important that your child have his or her own instrument as daily practice is a crucial part of learning to play. We can help you decide if purchasing or renting an instrument is the best choice for you.

Where can I get an instrument?
