Orchestra Supply List
I have provided a list of music stores below to rent a violin, viola, cello, or bass. This list was also sent home with the students on Friday August 13.
1)Instrument= The instrument should come with a case and a bow for violin, viola, cello, or String Bass. Your child can start out with a beginner model instrument. Your child will grow out of the instrument in a couple of years and need to be refitted. The student will be sized for the instrument when they go to the suggested music stores. The instruments are measured 1/8, ¼, ½, ¾, and 4/4.
