    Buying or Renting an instrument is a big decision and should be viewed as an investment. Thank you for visiting this page to gain information before you invest in an instrument for your band student.  If you have any questions please contact me via email at steven.stevens@cabarrus.k12.nc.us

    Learning to play an instrument is hard enough...students who start band on a quality instrument tend to learn faster and stay with it longer then students who start on an inferior instrument. Buying an instrument is an investment that will impact your band students progress. I strongly suggest buying your instrument from a reputable music store like Howren Music who provide students with quality instruments. Howren Music also provide rent to own options and pre-owned programs that help make this investment easier to make.
