Find the right fit for a musical instrument

A young girl is fitted for a string instrument.

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) Music education is important for students, and it’s essential to get good advice when you’re getting started. Joel Hoekstra and Marty Otto from Meyer Music work with schools and parents to make it a good fit both physically and financially.

The first thing Meyer Music does is do a fitting, which means trying out different instruments to see what the student can play most successfully. The main goal is to find the instrument that fits the child best.

Families pay a small monthly fee for the instrument, and eventually own it. Kids can change their minds if they want to try something new. They can bring the old instrument back and apply it to the next one. Meyer Music can also help repair broken instruments.
