A good quality instrument makes a big difference in the success and progress you can enjoy with your music lessons!
You’ll need access to an instrument in good repair in order to practice at home, and—with the exception of pianos—to bring with you to your lessons. Depending on what kind of lessons you are taking, you may also need other essentials like an instrument case, music stand, metronome, tuner, and a music carry bag.
If you’re looking to rent or purchase an instrument, we recommend you visit one of the musical stores we partner with for PCS student specials.

The showroom is located in the same building as our Pleasantburg Drive studio. Ask for Dick or Clint, and be sure to mention that you are a PCS student!

If you need to purchase, lease, or rent an instrument, we recommend Musical Innovations. Musical Innovations offers full warranty coverage on all instruments, and you may return a rented instrument at any time with no minimum contract or penalty. If you lease your instrument, 100% of your monthly payment applies towards ownership (or in the case of fractional size strings, to the purchase of a full-sized instrument).

For Voice Students
For voice students, you are your own instrument! However, you will still need some supplies to make sure you make the most out of your lessons, such as a recording device and a mirror.
If you have any questions about any of these supplies, feel free to contact our office at 232-5010 or speak with your teacher.
