For all lessons and classes, please have the following ready:

Private Lessons:

  1. Your instrument (If you don’t have an instrument at home, let your teacher know; there may be some alternatives!)

  2. Optional: A whiteboard or paper & markers

MiniKeys:

  1. A drum. Hint: You can make a drum out of lots of regular household items, such as a plastic tub, coffee can, a box--you just need something that can make a percussive sound to keep a beat. Make a game out of it and search around your home to find a good sound.                                      

  2. A keyboard or a keyboard app for the ipad or phone. (There are lots of free keyboard apps available. Just pick one that looks fun to you. :)
