Piano Students - It is essential that you have a good piano or a full sized digital piano before you start lessons. I trust the folks at Schmitt Music in Kansas City to help you with any instrument questions.
A flute in good working condition Please consult me before purchasing or renting new instruments. I may be able to help you find a better price and a higher quality instrument. I am more than happy to visit shops with you to assist you in purchasing instruments. I do not charge extra for being your "personal shopper" – this is also a service included in the price of tuition.
I will provide a lesson notebook for students
Sheet music, books, etc.
Sheet music Please expect to spend around $50 each year on music. I typically use the following suppliers:
• Luyben Music 4318 Main Street - Kansas City, MO or (816) 753-7111
• Flute World (248) 855-0410 or www.fluteworld.com
• Carol Nussbaum Music Company (877) FLUTE4U or www.flute4u.com
• Sheet Music Plus www.sheetmusicplus.com
Flute Students will also need:
A music stand for practicing at home
A cleaning cloth and rod
A tuner (required for all students with more than two years of experience)
