INSTRUMENT SELECTION TIPS:
- Caution—Instrument found on the internet are generally very poor quality, will not stay in tune, and are harder to play.
- I highly recommend taking advantage of a rental program offered by a reputable music vendor such as:
MATERIALS NEEDED FOR CLASS

- 3 ring binder for music handouts
- Rock stop for cello and bass
