Please arrange to rent or purchase your instrument. Students must arrange for an instrument prior to the start of Summer Band Lessons. There will be an in-person rental fair/event on May 10, 5-6:30 pm at Twin Oaks Middle School. Please watch for information provided from the Middle School Band teachers. You can also rent/purchase your instrument online. Here are three companies we recommend. 1. Groth Music - (952) 884-4772 https://www.grothmusic.com/aerntschoolselect.aspx 2. Schmitt Music - (612) 238-9930 https://www.schmittmusicforbeginners.com/aerntschoolselect.aspx 3. Eckroth Music - 651-704-9654 https://www.eckroth.com/aeRntSchoolSelect.aspx Please bring 2 reeds to all lessons (if your instrument requires them). Please purchase the book, Accent on Achievement Book 1, and bring it to all lessons. All lessons will be 30 minutes. If you/your child were not assigned to play this instrument, you will be cancelled from this lesson slot and we will attempt to contact you to reschedule a lesson time for your assigned instrument. Lessons slots are subject to availability. Please contact Community Education at 952.226.0310 if you have registered for the wrong instrument or otherwise need to change your lesson time. Due to the nature of the program, missed lessons may not be made up. If your student will miss a lesson (or more), please discuss that with your students instructor(s) once band starts. We will do our best to accommodate and to help your student catch-up.
