Purchasing an instrument:
An instrument purchase is a substantial educational investment. The band directors want to guide families towards instruments that are of a reputable quality and are developmentally appropriate.
Whenever purchasing an instrument not listed in the supplies instructions above,always check with a band director first. For every quality, reputable instrument, there are at least two “lemons” or instruments that are not developmentally appropriate.
Playing on deficient equipment is a surefire path to musical discouragement. Let the band directors help guide you towards a smart purchase when it comes to this important decision!
