October is now upon us. It's time to start thinking about the fast approaching holidays. For school students who are taking up an instrument for the first time, it's good for parents to review with them how they're enjoying the experience of learning music. Maybe a brass player is ready for their first mute. A string player may be ready for new strings. We have many useful items here at Music & Arts that make great stocking stuffers. For 2nd and 3rd year students, this is a good time to access whether your student is ready for their own instrument. If you have a high school or college student, you should check out our Horns Of Plenty event on Saturday, November 23rd where they can try out the largest assortment of instrument models anywhere in the country. We also have our Halloween recital on Friday, October 25th and is open to all music students. Feel free to call or email us at the Glendora store for more info or to sign up for these events.
