For information on musical lessons, check with Beth Bevars, ensemble manager for Armstrong Atlantic Youth Orchestra. She can email you a list of local musical instrument teachers, their specialties, locations, contact info, lesson tips etc. Email Beth at firstname.lastname@example.org .
Beth offers lots of great tips about getting your child started with a musical instrument in my Q&A column with her here.
One tip Beth suggests is exposing your child to live music.
