I feel like I blinked and missed summer . . . but fall means school starts . . . which means it is almost time to begin lessons! Now is the perfect time to dust off your instruments – even though I know you practiced every day this summer 😉 – and brush up on your scales.
Find your music bag and make sure all your books are still there.
And maybe get measured, just to make sure your instrument still fits well.
To measure your child for instrument sizing:
- stand up straight! Extend your arm straight in front of you, palm up.
- with a tape measure, measure from the middle of the shoulder (between the top of the shoulder and the collarbone) to the middle of the palm of the extended hand.
18.4″ – 20.4″ = 1/4 size
20.4″ – 22.2″ = 1/2 size
22.2″-23.5″ = 3/4 size
23.5″ = 4/4 size
Thanks so much to New Creation Music Center for allowing me to repost their music sizing chart!!
