To rent/purchase your child's instrument and/or supplies
contact the local music stores to reserve your instrument!
Students must furnish their own instruments for beginning band with the exception of the most expensive ones. The instruments provided by the school for a yearly maintenance fee are: oboe, bassoon, horn, euphonium, tuba and percussion. Instruments not furnished by the school are available through music dealers on rental-purchase plans at competitive monthly rates. This affords an opportunity for a trial period on the instrument before purchasing. DO NOT LET MONEY BE THE DECIDING FACTOR! We have MANY alternatives that we can discuss to ensure every student who wants to learn to play an instrument can!
