HOW TO OBTAIN AN INSTRUMENT

INSTRUMENTS RENTED OVER THE SUMMER AND FALL WILL BE DELIVERED TO EACH SCHOOL AND PASSED OUT DURING EACH STUDENT'S FIRST LESSON

For those needing an instrument, our schools use the services of the David French Music Co. You can visit their website at www.davidfrenchmusic.com to rent an instrument online. David French music will visit our schools weekly for service and deliver your instrument before your first lesson. We have chosen David French due to their excellence in service, knowledge, and price.


You are welcome to purchase or rent from any company you wish but we strongly encourage you to contact us before purchasing an instrument online. There are many “music teacher approved” instruments on auction or non-music websites that not suitable for learning. You child’s chance of success is dramatically reduced if they are playing on an instrument that was never designed to play properly. This is a very serious problem that impacts many children every year. A good quality used instrument will cost the same or even less than many low-cost new instruments. These quality used instruments will cost less to maintain, last longer, and play better from the very first day.


Please contact the band director, Mr. Mohar dmohar@abschools.org or Director of Performing Arts, Mr. Arsenault garsenault@abschools.org if you have questions about a specific instrument.
