music materials to give away

Post by jhrivnak »

Hello fellow music teachers,
Now that I’m retired, I want to give away some materials just for the charge of postage. Some items are showing age but are very useable; some are excellent/new condition. If you tell me what you’re interested in having, I will box the materials and have the post office determine shipping cost, then I will let you know. You can pay with PayPal, check or money order and I will mail your package. Contact me at
Thank you and keep up the good work sharing the love of music! My home is COVID-free (sanitized, had our shots) and smoke-free.
