Before your first lesson,

bring the following.

I am thrilled to guide you along your musical journey! Let's make sure you're well prepared! 



You'll need an instrument (Violin, Viola, Cello, or Bass) with its bow and case. These can be purchased or affordably rented.

Consider consulting one of the following suppliers: 

Sheet Music


If you have no prior musical experience, we will use the Rose Music Studio lesson book corresponding to your chosen musical instrument. This book is only available at Rose Music Studio and can be purchased through this link.

(note: if you received an invoice for lessons, your teacher may have already included the charge for this book)

If you have prior musical experience, bring any music you are actively practicing. During your first lesson, it will be determined which Suzuki Method book you should purchase.
