As school is about to get back in swing, here's a list of recommended materials for your/your students' lesson and practice bag. I include practice, because these supplies are very helpful for practice as well! The word essentials isn't entirely accurate, because of course you can have an effective lesson even if a student forgets some of the materials. But "essentials" sounds better than "recommendations" in the title. :) The top of the list applies to music students in general, and the second part includes additional materials for harp students.
What do you recommend students bring to lessons? Do you require it or recommend it?
Anddd.....the lovely folks of Virginia Harp Center have offered a discount code to readers! Just enter the coupon code FIRST10 at checkout to receive 10% off any item in their online store.
