Readiness Checklist

You’ve rented, now it’s time to get ready for music class! 
Here are the top 5 things to consider, and plan for, as your child prepares for their school music program.

✅ Rent your instrument--done!

Purchase method and music books--either a teacher assigned book, a method book or another fun music book to start with.

Brush up on instrument care, and purchase necessary instrument maintenance accessories--caring for and being responsible for an instrument is part of the learning process.  Visit to purchase instrument-specific cleaning supplies.

Set up a good place for home practice--new players need help getting organized for practicing at home, which they will be doing a lot of! A good practice area is a place that isn’t disruptive and includes a chair, a music stand and, for brass and orchestral string instruments, a mute.

Find inspiration--help your child find a musician that plays the instrument they’ve chosen and who really inspires them.  Finding time to listen together will give you insight into your child’s musical joy and aspiration.
