ALL STUDENTS: Everyone needs a music stand for home practice and a thin three ring binder to keep their music and handouts organized

VIOLINS ONLY! All students need a good  shoulder rest.  Here is a link to one of the brands I prefer (Everest).  Other good brands include Muco and Kun.  These can be purchased at local music stores or online.  Please make sure your child has a shoulder rest for their first lesson! Shoulder rests come in different sizes, so be sure to get one that is the same size as your child's violin (1/2, 3/4, 4/4 etc). I also suggest getting something called a "pinkinest" to help them learn the proper bow hold. Here is a link to the product on Amazon.  

INSTRUMENTAL MUSIC GUIDELINES

EGLAS GENERALES DE MÚSICA INSTRUMENTAL

Beginning Students: Homework #1 (Due on first day of class)

PERCUSSION ONLY: (reminder: percussion is available for 5th grade only!)

Students who sign up for percussion need to rent or purchase a snare drum (including stand) and snare drum sticks.  You may also choose to get a snare drum pad instead of a snare drum.  You have the option of getting a bell-kit if your child would like to learn how to play the bells.  This is optional.  Please make sure your child has a stand for either the snare drum or practice pad so they can be played at the proper height.
