I am NOT a traditional shop. I help teachers put together music programs. I talk to you via email, text or phone call, and we put together a package that suits YOUR classroom. Of course you can simply order things here with a click, like any other online store. Individual orders are welcome. But when you need help making choices, I'll walk you through everything, explain it all, and be the person that you can always talk to when you're shopping for music stuff. As a former LAUSD teacher, I know what you need!
YES! You can order ONE individual instrument, or just a few. You DO NOT need to order an entire package. These examples are for teachers that are setting up a full program. And YES, you can get GUITARS, too. And any other music gear, including orchestra and sound systems. This page is just a simplified way of showing some ideas.
Teachers and students have individual needs. These are just samples. You might prefer a different model for yourself or your advanced students, or a more sturdy instrument for kids with special needs. Your budget is MY budget. I'll make it work!
Prices are not listed, because they are below the allowable advertising price. Every company dictates the lowest price an instrument can be advertised for. Therefore, I respect these companies/friends and will refrain from showing a price that falls below their guidelines. My school program exists because I spent many years in LAUSD and I know that it's tough to get good gear within the confines of a school budget. So your price will be lower than any other price you'll find online. I absolutely guarantee it.
EXAMPLE: Google the "Package Number 1" gear to see what the standard price is. For example, the very nice TK-20 pictured here will generally cost around $180 - $200 at every retailer. The super-padded gig bag will generally run about $35 - $45. Tuners are usually around $15. So Package Number 1, if you bought it at virtually any retailer, would run about $7,000. Email Bartt to see what your price would be. And if you have a smaller budget, let's say $500 for example, I'll set you up. No need to spend thousands. And stay away from cheap instruments from online sellers. Crummy instruments are hard to play, they go out of tune, and they are NOT fun to play. Get good stuff and inspire your kids. They deserve it.
Package Number 1
High School Music Program of 30 Students
* 30 Ohana TK-20 tenor ukuleles
* 30 20mm heavy-duty protective gig bags
* 30 tuners
These are very nice ukes. Not student ukes. They'll sound loud and lovely at school performances, and you won't need to mic them or amplify them.
You'll also probably want extra strings, especially a big bag of A-strings that new students will break frequently!
If you're storing the instruments in your classroom, you might prefer hard-shell cases that are easy to stack, thereby taking up a lot less space.
