strings or band
Last week, my oldest daughter announced that her school requires her to choose what type of musical instrument she will learn next year. She could choose strings or band. We were excited but were surprised when we saw that the fine print suggested that parents would be required to rent an instrument for their child. We would never consider a long-term rental when we know that you can get top-notch instruments and accessories for a good price. For example, I know that you can get an m30 for less than a hundred dollars and a new student clarinet for less than three hundred. Once our daughter makes her choice, we will simply purchase her instrument rather than renting for the whole school year.
