Thank you for some great Spring Concert Performances!
Summer Instrument Rental & Lessons
All students are encouraged to rent their instruments for summer (even 8th graders). Summer instrument rental is $25 and I strongly encourage lessons over the summer. If not weekly, bi-weekly or some amount of regularity that keeps practice efforts focused and the instrument dust-free. Practicing in the morning is the best.
If you are interested in lessons, please check out the following fine establishments or reach out to me directly and I'll help you and your student find a qualified private teacher that is a good fit.
Here are some local establishments.
Also, as an added bonus (you'll need to talk with you tax professional), but unlike many of the other activities your student might participate in, music lessons and instrument rental are tax-deductible in the state of MN.
Instrument Rental Agreement
If you have not returned your instrument rental agreement and rental fee, please do so ASAP.
If you missed one at the concert, they're available here.
8th graders are welcome to rent for the summer and we'll coordinate a return in the fall.
