Having instrument supplies is crucial to each student’s success in his/her music class. For your information, I have listed the supplies students should have with them every time they play. In addition to music stores in the area, there are some online dealers that you can find if you’d prefer. I often buy supplies at www.musiciansfriend.com. It is recommended that students get supplies as soon as possible.
5th grade students will also need to purchase a method book (for their instrument) home/personal use. Class set, but they cannot go home with students. The method book is called Measures of Success, published by F.J.H Music Company.
*Call local music stores to see if they have them or search online (try Amazon or www.jwpepper.com).
