When HOA-AOSA was in its early years in the late 70's/early 80's, Judy Pine braved all kinds of weather to bring instruments and materials to UMKC for our chapter workshops. She pulled in early, unloaded everything, spent the day there and then loaded everything back up--ALL with a cheerful smile and boundless energy! West Music and Judy Pine played a very important part in supporting our chapter. Those Orff workshops were wonderful staff development for the teachers in Missouri/Kansas. It was SO IMPORTANT to have equipment available to use. Many of the teachers who attended those early workshops did not have instruments in their classrooms. West Music provided quality instruments for sale that are STILL in those classrooms today! This 'now-retired' teacher will always cherish Judy and West Music!

I was recently reminded of those early days when I walked into an HOA-AOSA Orff meeting and saw a wonderful display of materials that West Music had sent to us so that we could SEE ahead of time what we were purchasing! I appreciate the time and effort that it took to get those materials together and shipped. Thank you so much!!!

It was September of 1981; and I was a brand new music therapist; contracting my services to a couple of school districts. One day, at lunch, while at Birdville Elementary School, I discovered a West Music catalog. It was the first timeI had heard of West Music, and I was immediately delighted with the quality and variety of materials available through West Music. Fast forward to 2016, and I have been working as a music therapist for 35 years. Nearly all the musical instruments and a number of CD's and books in my office have been purchased from West Music....and West Music is always who I recommend to agencies, school districts, etc when they are looking to purchase musical materials for their special education program.

I can't imagine being a music therapist without materials from West Music!
