String Replacement Fee and Form – Important

Dear PBP Strings parent,

Welcome back!

I hope you had a restful and relaxing summer.

As all of you know the replacement of instrument strings has in the past been the responsibility of the parents. With the goal of having a uniform sound within instrument groups and simplifying the experience for students and parents we have begun to replace all strings to the same quality and brand.

This year the program will be charging a $10 per child annual fee to help achieve this new initiative. Please keep in mind that if your child’s private instructor requires different strings from the ones provided by the program you will still be required to pay the String Replacement fee and you will be responsible to supply the different strings.

Also, in preparation for the coming year, if your child is in Beginning, Intermediate or Advanced Strings, I would ask you to obtain the following supplies for your student before the strings classes begin:
Violin or Viola students:

  • Rosin (for whichever instrument your child plays)
  • Shoulder rest (to match the size of the instrument)

Cello students:

  • Cello Rosin
  • Rock stop

All of these items can be purchased reasonably through several online catalogs or locally at one of the local music shops.
