It is not too late!
Fittings: We have finished all of the fitting nights in the school, however, all of our local music stores do fitting appointments free of charge. Contact them directly to schedule an appointment; they will allow your child to try the the instruments and help them decide which instrument is right for them. Please download this InStore_Fitting_Form, print it, and take it with you to the music store when you attend your child’s fitting. Here is the contact information for the music stores:
