Policy on Purchasing Music
You MUST buy your own music for your private lessons and performances. There are several retail establishments that have an online storefront where music can be purchased. Some of them include:
• Penders (carries UIL / Prescribed Music List music)
Not all stores distribute music from all publishers. Students are encouraged to shop around for the best value. You should sign up for emails from every store in order to receive coupons and notifications of sales! Music does go on sale, but not two days before festival!
If you are a retailer and wish to have a link added to your store on this page, please contact me with the link below!
