District 97 Instrumental Music Department
Once you and your student have chosen an instrument, it is the parent responsibility to get an instrument for your child. Lessons are free, but D97 does not provide instruments. If you already have an instrument from a friend or family member, we highly recommend taking it in for a tune-up to one of our local music shops. If you do not yet have an instrument, we recommend that you rent an instrument.
The following vendors will be at the recruitment nights for your convenience:
PING! (Low cost instruments for students receiving free or reduced lunch or are experiencing hardship that prohibits them from affording instrument rental) - For more information about PING! please visit www.pingoprf.org.
We also recommend this quality local vendor:
