All the 'extras'

Whilst most beginner instruments come with everything the beginner needs to get going – a bow and resin for violin, or mouthpiece and valve oil for trumpet, for example – do be aware that it is quite common for these additional items not to be included in the package, so always ask.

Do some research into what items are essential for playing and maintaining the instrument and which can be bought later; with brass instruments, for example, a suitable mouthpiece and oil/lubricant are essential, whilst items such as mutes can be bought when the need arises.

 These can add significantly to the final cost, so it's important to establish this early on to ensure hassle-free buying.
