Band Instrument Rental Info
WHAT INSTRUMENTS CAN MY CHILD PLAY IN BAND?
Rent your instrument from Hills Music Shoppe, or Music & Arts. Please watch the videos below to learn how to rent your instrument from either Hills Music Shoppe or the Music & Arts shop. Make sure you tell them you are from Carroll Magnet Middle School.
What about cheap instruments on Amazon or eBay? Please, please do not purchase a cheap "instrument" for your child online. They are poorly made, sound terrible, do not play in tune, and they stop working after a few months. A few years ago, I saw one fall apart in a kid's hands while they were playing it in class. They are absolutely not "band director approved" as advertised. It is not a way to save money, it is a way to waste money.
If you are financially unable to rent one of the recommended instruments, please email me at JDickson@wcpss.net .
