    Welcome back! Instrumental music lessons are starting Thursday, September 19th.  Please help your student remember to bring their instrument and lesson book in each week. Lessons are on Thursdays or Fridays. Please feel free to email me at nancy.gross@woodbridge.k12.nj.us any time with any questions you may have in relation to the instrumental music program.


    The vendor we use for instruments and supplies is Music & Arts, www.musicarts.com 888-731-5396

    The Lesson Book for all students is called Standard of Excellence. It is red. 

    If you have any questions about your child's rental, your instrument needs repair, you need a lesson book, please call them directly. Once you make arrangements with them, they will deliver what you need directly to the school.


    If you are looking to purchase an instrument for your child, please talk to me before purchasing a "too good to be true" instrument off the Internet. There are many good instrument deals on the Internet but three times as many not so good deals. It is difficult to be successful on a poor quality instrument. If the instrument is brand new, comes with reeds, gloves, tuner and more for under $150, beware. 
    I want your children to have the best possible experience learning how to play an instrument.  These 'cheap' internet instruments will not give them that.  Reviews will say "Teacher approved" but I have yet to meet a music teacher that approves these instruments.
