Sound Beginnings materials are ordered by parents, per semester, at the time of enrollment on letsplaymusicsite.com. They are shipped to Mrs. Lesile, who distributes the materials to families before or on the first day of class. For a layout of the complete costs including tuition, materials and registration fee, see the Pricing and Policies page.

For $35 plus processing, shipping and sales tax, each semester materials set includes:

  • 1 semester workbook 

  • Semester album (digital music tracks to download)

  • 1 semester instrument 

 

Required Tote Bag ($8 each)Mrs. Leslie provides 1 FREE tote per family, your first semester, as part of you registration fee). The tote bag is ordered for you, by Mrs. Leslie, after you have registered for you first semester of Sound Beginnings.

 

*It is highly recommended that parents purchase a workbook ($15) for each additional sibling attending class that is over the age of 18 months, and an additional instrument ($6) for each sibling over the age of 6 months. Ideally each student should have their own materials during class (many children want their own!) so, it is worth the investment to purchase them.

Clarinet Lessons
 

When beginning lessons with Mrs. Leslie, clarinet students must have their own clarinet and mouthpiece, ligature and reeds, in good working order. There are many good clarinet options available, so we can work with what the student has, and make suggestions of what equipment may best aid and enhance their playing.  As lessons progress, certain accessories such as a neck strap, cleaning tools, mouthpiece cushions, thumb rest cushions, metronomes, tuners, reed care items, etc. may be suggested and must be purchased by the student or parent. Depending on the age and experience level of the student, Mrs. Leslie will also assign appropriate method books or scale/etude books or exercises, and solo repertoire.

Links to favorite items that Mrs. Leslie uses in her playing on a regular basis are below:
