Practice: As our young musicians develop their instrumental skill, practice is essential to their progress. You can help stimulate their motivation to practice by allocating a quiet space and time into their routine with gentle but firm reminders! “Come on, it’s 5 o’clock, it’s time for you to practice now!”

Guitar Grooves: Please look in the guitar tab of the blog. Beg – Eleanor Rigby, This land is your land, You are my sunshine. ALL – Brown Eyed Girl

Beginner Strings: The Abandoned Funhouse & Impulse

Advanced Orchestra – Fiddling With The Classics & Dragon Slayer

Instrument loans through school are free of charge from Friday afternoon to Monday morning, all loaned instruments must be returned by 8am Monday morning so that they are available for other students to use.

Please consider renting or purchasing an instrument to enable a daily practice routine. For rentals I am suggesting Harmony Music Company, they are local to Chula Vista and they have a good range of quality student instruments. They are offering a ‘reduced deposit deal’. Informational flyers will be sent home. Please e-mail me to ask if you wish to check on the size of the instrument your child requires.
