For drums, all you’ll need is a practice pad and a pair of sticks. Before moving on to a full drum set, students start off by building up their hand technique. You won’t have to consider getting a drum set until the student has had several months of training, and the teacher says they’re ready to move on to set playing.
Flute, Violin, Viola, & Cello
These students should own/rent an instrument to practice on and use during lessons. Waddell’s has a rental program for most band & orchestra instruments.
Piano students don’t have to have an actual piano when they first start off. Instead, a less expensive keyboard will suffice for learning basics and practicing. However, after about 2 years of playing, we’d recommend switching to an actual piano or a digital piano with weighted keys.
Guitar & Bass:
All guitar and bass students will need to bring their instruments with them to their lesson. We have a good supply of inexpensive beginner instruments and accessories. For more information on prices, call us at 724-934-1090
