As we get closer to departure . . .

Please be thinking about the following:
     - Be sure to pack sunscreen - it is easy to burn in the snow
     - Pack sunglasses - your eyes will thank you, even if it's not sunny
     - Take a look at Miss Prontka's thoughts below about packing your instruments



Packing Violins and Violas
Make sure that instruments fit snug into the case.  If there is open space, place a t-shirt in the open spaces.
Loosen your bow.
Don’t forget to pack rosin, shoulder rest, and music
If you have extra strings, you need to pack these as well.

Packing Cellos
Wrap a towel around the neck of the cello.  Wedge t-shirts in any open spaces in the case.  Gently place a t- shirt under the fingerboard.  
Loosen your bow.
Don’t forget to pack rosin, roc stop, and music
If you have extra strings, you need to pack these as well.


After we arrive and you open your case, if you are not 100% certain you can tune your instrument PLEASE WAIT for Mr. Shiu or Miss Prontka.
