An instrument will be required to take this course. Chris K Music sells used/refurbished/player ready instruments and repairs. You may also check into local or other stores in Central Illinois. Instruments do need to be inspected to ensure playability. Family instruments are encouraged.
Instrument testing/trying is available upon request.
Attendance at all classes is encouraged but not mandatory. If a student falls behind from missing they will need to seek help, enroll in music lessons or rejoin when the class is available again for beginners.
