How’s your instrument doing?
There is an expression that musicians use when they make a mistake. It goes, “Blame it on the instrument”.
No matter how careful a Player might be, an instrument in the hands of a beginner can easily get out of adjustment making it difficult to play. When this happens, the student is quickly discouraged.
For this reason, may we suggest that you stop by with the instrument as soon as possible. We’ll check it carefully, usually while you wait, and make sure the student can’t “Blame it on the instrument.”
