    The instruments we recommend are of the highest quality. If you find an instrument brand or model that is not on this list, please contact a director before purchasing the instrument. Many discount stores have begun to sell musical instruments. These instruments, although inexpensive, may be of questionable quality. They may not hold up well and it may be difficult to obtain repairs when needed. In the case of musical instruments, you really do get what you pay for. Please get the best possible instrument for your child and rely on your band director’s expertise. A quality instrument will help make band a more positive experience with the greatest possibility of student success.
