Lafayette Music is committed to being an important resource to music educators, whether private instructors or school teachers, and their students. To accomplish this, we offer:
- The widest selection of method and performance print music in the area with over 15,000 titles in stock and more being added weekly.
- A complete line of accessories for band and orchestra accessories with brand name products from Rico, Van Doren, Thomastik, Prelude, Thomastik and many others.
- Lists of currently active private teachers with links to their individual websites or other online information to enable students to easily search for teachers and to enable teachers to make themselves known to a wider audience.
If you are a private music instructor teacher who is currently actively engaged in teaching on a full or part time basis, you are eligible to receive our special teacher discounts and, if you wish, to be included on one or more of our teacher referral lists. All you need to do is to fill out our Teacher Application and bring it into the store. To encourage teachers to take advantage of this offer, we offer a one-time additional 10% discount on a single purchase of any size subject to certain exclusions. [Downloads, gift certificates, instrument rentals and some already discounted items are excluded from this offer.] This is our way of thanking you for providing us with the information we need in order to stock the items that you want us to have when you want them.
If you would like to teach in our store, download the In-store Teaching page and see if this interests you.
E-mail notification policy - Almost all our teacher specials are announced via e-mail. If you have supplied us with an e-mail address but have not received any e-mail messages from us for several months, we may have an invalid e-mail address on file or your spam filter may be set to automatically reject our mailings.
Standard discounts - Active teachers are eligible for a 10% discount on all regularly priced or permanently marked down music, accessories and gift items. Some exclusions apply and this discount may or may not be allowed in addition to other promotional offers depending on the offer.
Student Appreciation Program - Every active teacher, whether or not on the teacher referral list, is automatically enrolled in the Student Appreciation Program. To take full advantage of the program, all you have to do is come by the store and pick up some Student Appreciation Cards. Print your name on the card, sign it, fill in your student's name and date it. Then, every time your student presents this card when purchasing music, accessories or gift items at Lafayette Music, the student receives a 10% discount and you receive a 5% rebate in Lafayette Bucks, good for purchasing anything we have in stock. The 5% rebate applies to your own purchases as well as those of the students who are enrolled. (Some exclusions apply)
