I always love to hear from parents so please call me with any questions you might have about band. I’m at 2 different schools so my cell is the best way to reach me. Evenings and weekends are best as I’m making music with children during the day!

Our local music store, McPherson’s Music, is your best avenue for a quality band instrument. I encourage you to talk with McPherson’s about choosing a reputable brand, no matter where you intend to purchase, as they are the only musical instrument repair store on the island, and you may be stopping by sooner that later if you end up with an instrument that is not well made.
We have a limited number of school instruments for those students whose families may have difficulty getting one. Please call or email me if that is the case.
Providing a quality instrument, book and music stand is a great start! Your child should have a space to practice every night at home where there are limited distractions, (such as a TV on in the same room or little brother pestering). Then encourage every effort. There always comes a time when discouragement sets in and progress seems sooooo slow. Help them to persevere and at the end of the school year they will be amazed at what they can play!
