A Guide for First-Time Band Parents

Band_InstrumentsFirst time band parents trying to navigate their instrument options have a lot to think about. The Music Room is here to answer your questions.

Q. What’s the right instrument for my son or daughter?

A. Students often don’t know what they want to play. Sometimes they are influenced by friends or the music they like.

They can see for themselves what feels right for them and get an idea of what to expect. The next event will be held on May 24, 2017.
