Give Parents the Tools to Unlock Student Potential

UYS resources and inspiration are just a click away.

Band and orchestra students are back to school and developing their skills under your guidance. Some are quickly approaching the next level and ready to explore step-up instruments that match their passion and potential. Music & Arts is poised to partner with music educators and provide resources to support the process.

In the blog article links below, Dr. David W. Vandewalker offers a practical approach to having parent conversations and how equity and inclusion play into the overall quality of school music education programs.

As you share the benefits of upgrading to a step-up instrument, forward these parent flyers and event postcards to families in your music program. These tools will direct them to an Upgrade Your Sound event near them, where our expert Store Associates will guide the selection process and help find their sound with confidence.

Families also have the option to schedule a convenient private demonstration with an instrument expert at their local Music & Arts.
