Policy on Original Music

Students MUST purchase their own music for private lessons and performances. There are several retail establishments that have an online storefront where music can be purchased. Links are in the righth and column.

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. In general, Amazon is not a good source for musician supplies.

Penders and JW Pepper generally carry Texas UIL and PML music in stock.
