FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How much should my child practice?
Is it all right if we only have a keyboard for our child to practice on?
We do have students who start out practicing on a keyboard. We ask that they treat the keyboard as though it were a piano, sitting at proper height. Ultimately, students will need more keys, the pedal, the ability to play loud and soft, and the different touch that a piano provides.
When will my child be able to play in the band?
Students are invited to join the band when the teacher decides they are ready. It is generally understood that all students who are learning to play a band instrument will ultimately play in the band.
Where can I buy or rent an instrument?
Can my child take lessons if he/she does not go to one of the listed schools?
If your child does not attend one of the 12 core schools, he/she may take lessons at home if it is geographically feasible for us.
