HOW DO I GET AN INSTRUMENT?
Rent from a Local Music Store
Rental instruments include: Flute, Clarinet, Saxophone, Trumpet, Trombone and Baritone.
Rental Instruments can be delivered directly to the school.
Recommended Music stores:
*All rental contracts and payments need to be sent directly to the music store. Miss Mata will not collect contracts or money. *
Local Music Stores have new and used band instruments of good quality to purchase.
*Beware of online vendors. Brand new “cheap” instruments are usually very low quality and sometimes may not even play properly. These instruments wear out quickly and break easily.*
Please communicate with Ms. Mata if you are interested in purchasing your child an instrument. There are recommended brands for each instrument.
There is a very limited number of school owned instruments. These instruments are either very big, and/or expensive.
Parents and students will be asked to sign a usage/maintenance agreement before these instruments are distributed.
If you already have an instrument, please have your student bring it into school as soon as possible. I will look it over and make sure it is in working order, and let you know if repairs need to be made.
