Back to school also means back to music! For some students this also means starting fresh in new music books! We understand that the first few weeks of September can be a bit busy, so we have compiled a list of our top 4 favourite and most convenient places to purchase your music books.
What you will need to know from your teacher is A) if your child is ready for their next set of books and B) which level and series they are working out of. Our favourite tip for parents is to snap a photo of the cover on your smartphone when you speak to your child’s teacher at their first lesson of the year!
Top 4 Places to Purchase Music Books:
We love purchasing our music books online as they carry the Royal Conservatory of Music books for piano and singing, as well as all the levels of Piano Adventures books.
2. Long & McQuade (on Hillside Ave in Victoria)
While we understand that making an extra trip to Victoria is not ideal, we believe that Long & McQuade has the largest and most up-to-date collection of music books. Not to mention a ton of fun supplementary material for all levels of music makers!
3. Tom Lee (in Langford)
Tom Lee is located is a little bit closer of a commute as it is in Millstream Village in Langford. However, it tends to have a more limited selection for books. We suggest giving them a quick call before making the drive in just to be sure they have what you’re looking for.
4. Duncan Music (on the Trans-Canada Highway in Duncan)
You also have the option of picking up your new books right here in Duncan, at Duncan Music! They just moved locations, so make sure you double check you’re headed to the right location on your GPS.
Don’t panic about fitting in your trip over labour day weekend, as it is always best to check with your child’s teacher first before picking up the next set of books. We hope this list of our top 4 places to purchase music books helps ease the craziness of the back to school routine. There is nothing more exciting then starting fresh in a new set of books at the start of a new school year!
Happy music making, everyone!
