Guitar Supply List

ALL STUDENTS WILL NEED AN INSTRUMENT PLUS SUPPLIES LISTED BELOW

​Full Sized Classical Guitar

You may go to any reputable string shop to buy a classical guitar; however, we recommend Westbank String Shop (6301 Menchaca Rd, 512-326-4898, www.westbankstringshop.com).
Currently, Westbank is offering a FANTASTIC DEAL for a guitar/supply bundle (full sized classical guitar, guitar bag, tuner/metronome, footstool, extra set of strings, PLUS the “Classical Guitar for Young People” repertoire book).
Please talk to Mr. Hall before purchasing an instrument online. It is STRONGLY discouraged to buy an instrument from vendors like Amazon and Walmart!
