Keep your instruments in a large bag, box or basket and keep them dedicated to music class (and to together music time during the week!); we recommend that instruments used for class be kept separate from other toys, and only used and enjoyed during class time and during parent/child music play together.  That way, they are a special part of a special time with you! We have instrument kits available for check out, so you can leave your regular home instruments as part of the toy box.

To Borrow:
UCCMA is pleased to loan instruments through Instrument Checkout to our Live-Stream students.  For a $30 refundable deposit, we will lend you the required instruments. These instruments are for your use in UCCMA classes offered digitally; we recommend they only be used for classes and for parent/child play. Socially distanced instrument pickup will be by appointment.  Socially distanced return will be scheduled 1 week after your enrollment ends.
