    Suggestion: Since children grow so fast, it may benefit you to shop at a thrift store just like Mr. Megules.  The Red White and Blue Thrift Store in Hamilton off of I-295 Exit 63B has a plethora of dress clothes for a fraction of the cost of purchasing new.  Most of the clothes in the childrens' sizes are in great shape.   
     
    Instrument Rental (rent to own)
     
     Every band member is responsible to obtain an instrument.  Please follow the links below to rent an instrument.  Once the order is placed, the company will drop the instrument off directly to the school.  The representative visits on Thursdays each week, so be sure to place your order in enough time for them to process it and get it to you by the next Thursday.  
     
    This is a rent-to-own policy and it takes, on average, two years to pay in full.  Take good care of your instrument because it actually increases in value over time.  A used instrument in excellent condition will command a resale amount of equal or greater value of its initial purchase price in future years.  
     
    Brass Instruments:  Trumpet, French Horn, Trombone, and Euphonium.  
     
     
    Woodwind Instruments: Flute, Oboe,  Alto Sax, and Tenor Sax.
     
    Percussion Instruments: Drums, Bells
