I was told by my son's class teacher that the pupils need to choose one musical instrument for accumulate their academy point next semester. My elder boy has chosen clarinet whereas my younger boy has chosen violin. I actually do not play any musical instruments so I can't help them much in practicing their instruments. So what I can always do is making sure they practice their instruments every night before they go to their bed. As for getting the required accessories, their daddy will get via online which he believes they are cheaper than getting from retail shop. He had even commented the vandoren clarinet reeds at wwbw are cheapest amongst others!
