Resources for Musicians Playing Music at Home
Make Music For Life Everywhere You Go!
While playing in school or a private lesson at a White House of Music location is a great way to sharpen your musical skills, we have worked hard to create a variety of resources to help students learn from home as well! Our Resources page provides an excellent selection of blog articles and tutorial videos designed to help your student progress in their musical abilities from the comfort of your own home! White House of Music is also offering a variety of live-streaming events like our “Get Uke’d” classes and other tips and tricks from our expert musicians!
Taking the First Steps in Your Musical Journey
Our “Getting Started” article series provides a great source of knowledge for students looking to pick up the Guitar, Piano, Percussion, Violin, and Viola! If you’re looking to purchase your first instrument, White House of Music provides musicians with white-glove concierge service in-person or over the phone! Just contact one of our six stores, and a specialist will be more than happy to answer any questions you might have.
Music Isn’t Seasonal, It’s a Lifelong Experience
Keeping musical skills sharp requires practice throughout the calendar year. We provide some tips in our “Making Music For Life All Year Long” blog article. While many school-aged students might be taking lessons through White House of Music, a good number of our students are picking up an instrument for the first time later in life too! Many of our New Horizons Band members continue to play instruments well into their senior years!
Maintaining Your Instruments at Home
While White House of Music offers a great selection of repair services, some simple fixes and maintenance can be carried out at home. Our video repair tutorials guide you through the following processes:
- Restringing a guitar
- Maintaining a flute
- Tuning a string instrument
- Maintaining your clarinet
- Replacing a broken violin string
- Saxophone maintenance tips
If you don’t feel comfortable carrying out those repairs on your own, our maintenance and repair program offers peace of mind at an extremely affordable price point.
Setting up a Dedicated Practice Space
The last step in making music at home is creating a great practice environment! Lori Hausen provides a great overview of what these practice spaces can look like in our “Designing a Dedicated Spot for Music Practice” article. If you need help setting up your practice space, give us a call and one of our team members will get you set up for success!
