The exterior pocket is perfect for pencils, your passport, plane tickets, extra strings and more. The padded interior adds protection for your property, while secure handles and a padded adjustable shoulder strap with swivel clasps make it comfortable to carry, even when packed with heavy sheet music.

Excellent music tote!

I've had this tote for several years. It has held up well and has plenty of room for lots of music, a shoulder rest and many other accessories. The shoulder strap is wide and comfortable. Highly recommended.

A very good bag for carrying music

This bag holds an awful lot. I've been studying viola for two years and I can put all my viola music in it plus some of my guitar music and other items and papers. There's one thin nylon fabric interior divider for separating things and an outside pocket for more items. 8x11 papers don't quite fit in the outside pocket so it may be better, as another comment mentioned, to put metronomes, phones, glasses, etc. out there. It has sturdy handles and a good shoulder strap. The only problem as I see it is that it is very floppy and light, not stiff at all. So when loading it's best to lay the bag flat rather than upright which is my habit. But my writing portfolio stiffens it up a bit. It also would be nice to have a pencil pocket in the interior. But one can easily hang your pens and (mechanical) pencils on the interior divider. All in all a very good bag for carrying music.

Excellent bag

My daughter uses this bag for all her suzuki books, shoulder rest, pencil, extra paper. It has held up well being toted around each week to lessons and the occasional abuse from lying around on her bedroom floor. It's a great bag for keeping all her violin stuff together. The books and sheet music fit well inside and it is roomy enough for the shoulder rest, too.

A Steal

I have used this bag for almost 2 years as a laptop case. Its great for everyday use and for travel )a perfect personal item to carry on a plane(. An absolute steal at $9.99!

I'm a middle school orchestra director and this is my daily go-to bag. It's very durable and large enough to carry music, binders, folders, and whatever else is needed daily. Strong recommended!

A must buy!

I ordered this bag to help keep track of all my music books and papers. The bag came several days early, and I am delighted with the quality and look of it. My teacher loved it and recommended it to one of her students. I can even fit my orchestra folder inside, zip the bag, and keep my folder looking nice. An absolute MUST for any musician.

Pretty good for students.

Pretty good value for the money. Very basic. No little pockets for small stuff but music does fit nicely inside. Handle could use a little improvement.

Great Purchase

As a student this tote has been a wonderful purchase. It has held up very well and over-all I am very happy with it. Just as a heads-up: mine has a very thin stationary interior separator that isn't mentioned above.

Nice bag

I Received my bag last week. The outside fabric is sturdy, and the inside is lined with a nylon type fabric. It is roomy, has a divider inside, and is big enough for music books, sheet music folders, a binder and cello accessories, with room left for more. The adjustable strap has good clips that attach to strong d-rings on the bag. The shoulder pad is a nice additional feature. The strap adjusts up to 45 inches. The bag is very comfortable to carry, and leaves me with both hands free to lug my instrument. There is a zipper pocket on the outside. An 8.5 X 11 inch sheet of paper just barely fits into the outside pocket if you snug it in, so it is better to put papers inside the bag, and use the outside pocket for accessories or smaller notepad. My music-major college student daughter saw my new bag, and has claimed it, so I have a second one on order for myself.
