The Business Side of Teaching School Music: Choosing a Music DealerInstrumental music directors and parents should know that one of the strongest supporters of school music programs has been and continues to be the local full-service, school-oriented music dealer. Direct-mail and Internet retailers usually trade on price and do not offer service or in-depth concern for the local school programs or community.

A working "partnership" with a full-service dealer can benefit your program and save time in a variety of ways. Numerous services are almost always offered by the local dealer, but not necessarily by the out-of-state, telephone-based or Internet retailer. Learn how to evaluate both your needs and the capabilities of your local music dealer in this this tip sheet, The Business Side of Teaching School Music: Choosing a Music Dealer.
