Music and Instrument Storage
Organized band room storage is crucial for a school environment. It prevents time consuming and frustrating mix ups. Whether you have a traveling quartet or a full orchestra, Hertz Furniture's band instrument storage cabinets will keep your instruments and music in top-performing condition.
Do I really need a sheet music cabinet?
Sheet music storage keeps your band or orchestra organized and in tune. Organized music ensures that every student musician can play their part in the harmony. When musicians have designated personal shelves, they don't have to waste time shuffling through piles and drawers to search out fledgling pages of the score. Instead, each band member can keep their music organized for easy retrieval. Sheet music storage saves time and frustration so there is more time to practice, rehearse and perform.
How can I give my students a place to store their instruments?
Sheet music isn't the only thing that needs to stay organized in the music room. Students will feel more relaxed throughout the day if they are sure that their instruments are secure. Great instrument storage provides a secure space so students don't have to carry around heavy cases all day or risk leaving expensive equipment out in the open.
Randal Instrument Storage units are a Hertz Furniture exclusive. These cabinets are designed specifically for musical instruments. Hertz Furniture has a selection of instrument storage cabinets with a variety of configurations. Cabinets come with either solid or grille doors, both of which have their benefits. Solid doors keep oboes, saxophones or french horns safe from prying eyes and hands. Grille doors provide ventilation to the equipment and make it easy to identify cabinet contents. Students can simply peek inside the compartments and find their instruments rather than spending time searching for the right one. Many of Hertz Furniture's instrument storage cabinets can accommodate a combination padlock. Units are also available with completely open shelving for super fast retrieval.
How can I fit different kinds of instruments in my cabinets?
Whatever your instruments are, there is a music cabinet out there that can meet your needs. Many units feature multiple compartments of either varying or equal sizes. That way you can choose the configuration based on the instruments in your band. You might choose smaller compartments for instruments that are taken apart between uses such as flutes, horns and saxophones, taller skinny cabinets for violins and violas, large guitar storage units or a combination of the options.
Is there a special way to store string instruments?
While instrument lockers can be used for individual string instruments, when you have a whole section of the orchestra that needs to be accommodated, specialized racks might be a better choice. You can choose a bass rack, cello rack or violin and viola rack which will fit these instruments perfectly. Racks provide a safe way to move multiple instruments from practice space to rehearsal room without the risk of dropping them.
Do you offer furniture financing?
Your student musicians practice hard, so you want to make it as easy as possible for them to start playing and enjoy the music. There are so many things to be gained from having music in the educational environment, that providing appropriate instrument storage is definitely worth the investment.
