Your musical instrument is an investment. A quality musical instrument is a must! I've, unfortunatly, seen dozens of eager students become overwhelmingly frustrated because the instrument they are trying to play keeps breaking or is simply too hard to play because of it's cheap construction. These cheap instruments are the ones you'll find online at websites like Amazon. They are a too good to be true situation and should be avoided. Please invest in a quality instrument! Your best bet, and the best deal for your dollar, is to call Edward's Music at 910-425-8809. They will know exactly what you need to enjoy success in the orchestra or band. They have a variety of options to choose from. There are several videos on the next page that will answer questions about the instruments and how to rent them. If you have a financial difficulty, please contact Mr. Trautman and he will be able to confidentially work with you.
