When does band class meet? Does my child need to have previous experience?
Which instruments are in the 6th grade band?
Where do I rent / purchase an instrument?
As you consider various rental plans, it is important to keep in mind that your child’s success will be affected by the quality of the instrument. You are strongly encouraged to obtain your instrument from a reputable music store with an in-house or local repair shop. If your child plans on using an older instrument (for example, one that has been in the attic), please let a band director check it over for you to assure that it is in good playing condition. You will also want to make sure your instrument comes with a good quality case to protect your investment.
