You've Got Brass!

If there is one thing that I know, it is that organized band equipment can be as expensive as college tuition. As a percussionist, I know that there are literally hundreds of parts and pieces in a working trapkit, all of which cost anywhere from several to several hundred dollars. I am told that something as simple as an underpart can be a real financial burden to some families.Unfortunately, they are essential when playing a reed instrument.

Do not try to break the bank; shop around for the best deal and remember how important the Arts and Humanities are for young people to learn and hopefully thrive at.
