    Need an instrument?
    Please, do not rent or purchase an instrument before contacting Ms. Nichols first!

    If you have decided to purchase an instrument for your child, own an instrument that needs repair, or would like to discuss a financial concern, please contact Ms. Nichols.
    How can I support my child?
    The Music Parents' Guide by Anthony Mazzocchi is full of great information for parents of young musicians. A copy of the book is included with instrument rentals from The Music Shop.
